High-quality flint and steel set from cabonsteel, in handy size format. Along with a piece of flint in a burlap bag.
By striking a sharp piece of flint with the high-quality steel, a small piece of metal is released. This piece of metal immediately oxidizes and begins to glow. This is the spark. You try to catch this spark on a piece of tinder. The glowing tinder can be taken back to a so-called bird’s nest, piece of birch bark or a featherstick. From there you blow it into a flame and further through the phases to a warm and stable fire.
In the knowledge section of the website you will find much more about how to make fire in different circumstances.
Carbon steel is often found in tools. It is therefore also called tool steel. With an old-fashioned file, or even with your (non-stainless steel) Bushcraft knife, you could achieve the same thing. But now tell me honestly, for every purpose, there’s a tool… And such a high-quality flint and steel set secretly looks very interesting.
