Finally! After a few trials and errors I'm on a new piece of steel that I can make any decent firesteels from.. Apparently they don't make all car springs from the same steel... of course.. I tried quite a few springs, but they wouldn't give me the sparks I was after, so I went to other things all frustrated. But today I found a spring that gives (by the first looks) the same sparks as the one I used before. So I hope to be back with some steels next week, after a loooooooooong long time..
No worries. I stayed out late in forge tonight and made some more steels, to make sure we have enough. Made 6 more, so there are still plenty left. Next bunch going out monday morning, you should have them by friday hopefully
