Steel and flint shortly after the discovery of steel, about 4,000 years ago. :)

Oooo ta very much. You see, I associate the second millenium BC (4000 years ago) with Bronze age 'goings on'. But I see there was some ancient steel around 4000 years ago (from wiki) - now I am confused :confused:


Perhaps I should take Robbi up on the offer of a lighter - BTW I sold that fly gear, Rob :cool:

nice one ! that was quick, was it to the bloke who wanted it fot salmon fishing ?


No someone else :D 'twas a bit of a bargain price.


Now..... which knife????? No no no no no no no!!!!


Anyway, back on topic, this fire thing is terribly interesting - how did we end up with steel in the Broze age? or is this because there is a European bronze age and various discoveries of iron etc at different times for different parts of the planet???

( to go with the knives :slap: )

Do you think I should have more? Now, if I were to start prepping for when the zombies attack perhaps I should have at least 30 of them stashed about my person and in my 'bog off bag' or whatever it's called....
