Fire steels were standard personal equipment throughout the Viking Age, often carried hanging from the belt or in a pouch. Made from carbon steel, they are used in fire making where the the steel is struck against the sharp edge of flint, chert or similar rock, which creates sparks.
Our hand forged fire steel is of the typical Viking Age design that have been found throughout Scandinavia. It allows for a good grip that also protects the fingers. It comes with a hand-stitched leather pouch that also fits any other fire making tools you may need. A flint stone from the Baltics is included, which is of the same kind that would have been used by the Vikings.
