Hand Forged Steel Flint Fire Strikers
In the past a steel striker was the only instrument with the help of which it was possible to make the fire. This metal plate struck the spark. Hundreds of years passed, so it should seem a man does not need such a device any more, because now the fire is domesticated, there is nothing extraordinary in it. However, a steel striker still could be a good and stylish present like, for example, pocket watch, daggers, cigar-cases etc. An accessory with rich history could become a wonderful present, not only beautiful, but also useful, for example, for lighting a fireplace or the fire in the wild. Many people prefer taking a steel striker for a camping trip, because it won’t fail. Metal and stone resist cold, wind and rain.
In different corners of the world steel strikers had typical shapes. The fire steels found in France were made in one style, but the steel strikers that were found in England were designed in another way. Thus, the history of the fire steel is still alive in the contemporary world. Today steel strikers in different variants are on sale and could be ordered. Now like in old times fire steel has different shapes and types, but it is still the effective instrument of making the fire.
