    Hello bushcraft friends-

    I have a few more strikers for your consideration for your flint & steel pursuits.

    English three 6-11-19.jpg

    These are English style. Traditional and period correct for frontier and fur trade era, these are for all you history buffs and reenactor types. They have a loop for lanyard attachment if you like.

    I forge these one at a time from old files. They are good high carbon steel and throw very good sparks. The larger ones are especially good if you are whacking away experimenting with new rocks you find. That seems to take harder strikes than working with primo flint or chert.

    Number 3 is about 4 inches long
    Number 4 is about 3 inches long and will fit in an Altoids tin
    Number 5 is about 4 1/4 inches long

    These are $20 +$5 shipping CONUS. If you live elsewhere, no worries, we can work something out for additional shipping costs.

    I will ship these with a piece of black English flint and some char cloth so you can have some immediate gratification.

    I have had great feedback on my strikers from folks here in the BCUSA community and I test each one before I post it, but if you have any problems with them, I will gladly refund or replace.

    Let me know if you have any questions. If you would like one, please PM me with the number for a PayPal address. You can also let me know it there is some other method of payment you would like.

    Thanks for looking and keep your tinder dry!

    Five snakes crossed my path this morning as I hiked. They were tiny, and looked like they had just hatched.... it's a sign!

    Ha ha! It is funny to learn what others see in these. I was picturing some dude in buckskins lighting his pipe or something rustic like that...but I take your point!

    Thanks for following my projects. More are on the way.
