This small, but comprehensive, trainee fire lighting kit was originally designed so that my son, who was 6-years old at the time (see You-Tube video) was able to practice his spark based fire lighting skills. The kit was then developed, and adapted, to enable these same skills to be taught to Cubs and Scouts. This kit has everything that is required to develop the confidence and proficiency of any beginner to this wonderful fire lighting methodology from the ages of 6-years and older.
Once a student has developed the basic skills required to create fires, purely based upon sparks (i.e. without matches or lighters), they can progress to the more advanced methods of spark based fire lighting, which involves the use of traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ and then from there they can progress to ‘Flint & Iron Pyrite’.
Traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ is a fire lighting technology that has been around for some 2,000 years. However, the use of sparks to create fire is a technology that is much more ancient than that. The use of naturally occurring ‘Flint & Iron Pyrite’ is a technology that has been around for at least 14,000 years.
