The Steel Striker - Traditional Canadian 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.
Following the popularity of our standard Steel Strikers
, we sanctioned the production of this traditional Canadian design, harking back to the days of the fur trade. Its shape is based on the styles of those found from the late 1700s. The oval shape of these strikers provides two sides to strike upon, while also making it convenient to secure the steel to your sheath/rucksack etc.
Each striker is hand-forged exclusively 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
