BCB Fireball Flint & Striker Grand c/w Compass
What do our instructors think? Here Jason writes;
"We discovered these fire balls early in 2008 and decided to give them a bit of a field test. To be honest on the first strike I nearly put it down and walked away as I thought that it could not compete with the Swedish Steel, but just changing the angle of the striker just a little... whoosh... it had my attention again. We field tested them for 6 months and decided they were definately capable, never letting us down and deserving of being sold. This is a good alternative fire steel with its own characteristic sparks."
Disadvantages: The striker took us a few attempts to master as the shape is very different, but do work at it as the fire ball is very impressive once mastered. We have found that many people on our courses have shown a preference to the fire ball as there is no piece of string holding the striker to get in the way!
