Striker Kit Breakdown;

Carbon Steel Striker 
One Hand-forged carbon steel 'n' shape also know as rat tail striker design, made in small batches at a traditional blacksmiths forge here in England. Each striker features an iconic rustic steely grey appearance complete with the telltale signs of hand-forged hammer marks. 

Black English Flint
A piece of knapped black flint, sourced from the South of England, these Flint pieces are ideal for use with a Carbon Steel Striker. 

Jute Drawstring Pouch
A natural lightweight pouch to store & carry your traditional fire kit, which can also double up as emergency tinder source if needed

Jute Twine
10ft Jute bundle, these natural plant fibres catch a spark very easily, with simple preparation. Rough up some of the end fibres between your finger and thumb to separate the strands out and then aim sparks to use as a wick
