For the Scout, a Fleur De Lis fire striker. It was adopted by the Scouting Movement and used in the compass rose, as Lord Baden Powel states because it "points in the right direction (and upwards) turning neither to the right nor left, since these lead backward again."
It is made from high carbon steel, professionally cut and heat treated right here in Utah. Like all our strikers, it will fit comfortably inside of an Altoids tin fire kit. It can also be included as part of a Fire Necklace. And 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.
