Emberlit Flint and Steel

Beginning even before the Iron Age to the invention of the sissy friction match, Flint and Steel is how fire was made. The Romans enjoyed evening gladiatorial battles to the angry light of bonfires spat forth by Flint and Steel. For a Viking nothing was more relaxing after a long day of pillaging than a drunken evening of bare knuckles boxing and boastful stories of conquest around a burning thatched roof cottage set aflame with Flint and Steel. The Pioneer powered through their trek west pulling hand carts across frozen plains and over jagged mountains all the while beset by swarms of locusts the size of lobsters with a smile on their face. Why? Because they where fueled by whole bison, spit roasted over fires they started with Flint and Steel. 

While our forebears made do with plain bits of steel these custom strikers are designed to be worn as pendants, zipper pulls, or other decorations, and sized to be conveniently stashed in a kit or fit in an altoids tin. Each design has been carefully chosen to be functional as well as visually unique. Emberlit Flint and Steel strikers are made from superb high carbon steel professionally heat treated to the optimal hardness for throwing showers of hot sparks. Get a custom Emberlit flint striker so you can light fires with style and without shame. Save those matches for freshening the bathroom.

Honestly, these Flint and Steel strikers were inspired by my Boy Scouts, half of which were siblings at the time, when they started fighting over a Flint and Steel kit I got at rendezvous and was demonstrating to them. I got the idea to make many fun and unique patterns so they could all pick a favorite that would hopefully keep their interest long enough to learn how to make sparks.
