    I got bored and put together a simple flint and steel kit today and thought I would pass it along to someone who is interested in giving it a try. Here is the kit:
    20190806_121222.jpg
    Includes both charred and uncharred denim, Missouri chert, an Altoid can, and some jute twine. That piece took on two very gentle strikes.

    Stipulations:
    :)Don't already have a F&S kit.
    :)Be willing to post a picture using it in the Flint and Steel Friday thread.
    :)Just say, "I'd like a chance to throw a spark!"

    That's it. I'll draw a name via random number generator Sunday evening and mail it out the next day. Good luck!

    Not in. Fantastic GAW!

    Flint and steel is my favorite way to mess around making fire. I hope someone who has not tried it will jump in to take advantage of this fun skill via this GAW.

    Not in, but would like to say thank you for doing this. F and S is my favorite way of building a fire. The only problem I've found is that's super addicting.

    drum roll...………..random number generator selects number 2.

    Huzzah! OMRebel, I'm very excited. I've been meaning to find something like this but haven't gotten around to it. I don't think there's a lot of high quality striking rocks around here near Baltimore, I'm sure if I head to the mountains or knew what I was doing... I get a few sparks but the rock doesn't last long and the sparks never seemed like enough to get a fire going. Thank you! PM incoming.
