    Default Flint and Steel striker Kits..

    I have come to really enjoy making these..We use only good quaility american made files like nicholson or black diamond and good known steel..Like 1095 and W1..I full harden all strikers..I use parks 50 to quench..its very nearly as fast as water without all the harsh side effects..I normalize all strikers after forging and have no problems with breaking..i offer them as striker only or as kits..The kit will include char cloth, jute twine and flint..All packed in a 4" tine stamped withour touchmark..
    here are some examples..





    Tomahawk/axe head shaped striker..

    Looking good! Glad to see another blacksmith in the vendors. Did I miss it, or what kind of prices are we talking on the strikers?
