Steel Striker - Twisted Tang Design


Weight: 42 g         1 review
The Steel Striker - Twisted Tang Design is a fantastically simple fire-lighting tool based on ancient designs. When struck with a piece of flint, the Steel Striker will give off a shower of sparks with which to ignite your charred cloth or tinder of choice. This is an excellent skill to learn as an alternative to modern fire lighting techniques, and is taught on a number of our courses.

Each striker is hand-forged for Woodlore by the esteemed British blacksmith Andrew Kirkham. Andrew has produced a number of items for Ray and Woodlore over the years, including our Folding Griddles, and Ray Mears Crooked Knives.

In his own words Andrew said "I am very happy to be producing this third type of fire steel for Woodlore - this type has become a trademark model for me. It is based on 17/18th century examples but with an additional twist. Hand forged from the same quality carbon steel as my other models of Steel Striker and Steel Striker - Traditional Canadian Design".

  A treasure. Beautifully made and feels lovely in the hand. Never tried this technique until I bought this and was surprised at how effective it is.
