Mastering the fire has been a main reason why us humans have been so successful here on earth. With a fire steel, you have the most basic tool for making fire, and it has been used almost as long as history itself.
This is a handmade Viking-style from carbon rich steel, which when struck on flint creates sparks to start a fire.
The sparks that form when the striker hits the flint can be caught with a tinder, such as tinder fungus or charcloth that will start to smolder. The next step is to transfer your ember to something like dry grass to get the flame going.
