This is a multi function Striker. Think of it sort of like a medieval safety pin. Also known as a Penannular, these Blanket pins let you wear wool blankets much like a cloak or hoodie. There really is something special about the combined warmth of a campfire and thick wool blanket draped over your shoulders.
It is made from high carbon steel, right here in Utah. Because of the nature of these pins, I have personally heat treated and fit each Blanket Pin Striker. As such no two are perfectly identical and come with an oil finish. We have suitable stone for striking sparks if you can't find any in your area.
Our strikers can rust and tarnish. This is why they cast a spark when struck against stone; rust is just a slow form of burning. This is only cosmetic and harmless. They polish up easily with an abrasive sponge or sand paper.
