The Rounded-Rectangle Mini Striker is a traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ Striker used for spark based fire lighting, and up until the end of the 19th century, this ancient technology was in constant use all over the world for over 2,000 years. Based on a technology that has stood the test of time, we have produced this dinky little Rounded-Rectangle traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ Striker so that it could be used in our Mini Pocket Tinderbox, but due to popular demand it can now be purchased as a separate item.

The Rounded-Rectangle Mini Striker is easy to use and hold, since it is a billet of high carbon steel that is 1-7/8 inches (48mm) long by 9/16 inch (14mm) wide and 5/32 inch (4mm) thick, allowing you to hold it firmly with three fingers and your thumb. It has sufficient weight so that when it is struck against a piece of Natural Flint it will produce a healthy shower of sparks that will easily set an ember with Char Cloth or Natural Amadou Tinder Fungus. This high spark yielding Striker makes traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ fire lighting both easy to learn with and a pleasure to use and it is small enough to be placed in any small fire lighting or Survival kit.
