Wilmas Steel Flint Striker

Wilmas steel striker comes from Sweden and is a high quality steel for creating sparks by striking a piece of flint.These sparks come off at approx 400 degrees and are hot enough to light a piece of char cloth or other tinders and thus generate fire.

This steel is designed for those of you who prefer to source your own tinder and flint, the Wilmas Steel striker is also available as a complete kit which includes some pieces of flint and various tinders to get you started.

What do our instructors think? Here Jason writes:

"Before you buy steel for creating sparks using flint you must make sure you know that the steel has a high iron content, as it is this which is the key to producing a good shower of sparks. It constantly amazes me that most "experts” do not know this, that iron is a pyrophoric material. This steel is without doubt the best one I have ever used, its like the 5th November when you produce a shower of sparks. Don’t get me wrong, others on the market still work, but this is the best I have come across in my years of practicing Bushcraft."

Advantages:The steel is made from high quality metals and therefore the temperature of the sparks it produces is high which in turn makes it easier to ignite tinder. The steel will work in all weathers and will generate sparks on flint even in damp conditions.

Disadvantages: Although the steel will work in damp conditions you need to ensure the tinder you are dropping the sparks on to remains completely dry in order for them to take a spark.
