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 firemaking 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 firemaking tools you may need.
