This is my really old horse design. I tried to use negative space in the design. My friends (uncultured savages... I'm at you Lex, Troy) teased me for being too artsy.
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.
