Wilmas Traditional Flint and Steel Tinder Kit

Wilmas flint and steel tinder kit comes from Sweden and is a complete kit for getting your fire started.

It includes a cluster of dry grass, some amadou (processed fungus), a feather stick, some sharp flint and a high quality steel for creating the sparks. Full Instructions included.

What do our instructors think? Jason writes:

"Before you buy any flint and steel kit 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: Includes everything you need to get started with making fire using a flint and steel. 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 flint and steel will work in all weathers and will generate sparks even in damp conditions.

Disadvantages: We recognize the tinder supplied with the flint and steel tinder box is of a limited supply so you will need to source your own once this runs out. Although the flint and 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, but hey, you’re good enough for this!

Woodland Ways also stick this supplied in a Reindeer Leather pouch, please see the related items tab for details.

With the current lockdown making it difficult to get out and practice skills where I would like to be, I've been setting myself new challenges around bushcraft skills I can do in my garden. Top of my list was learning flint and steel fire lighting and this is the perfect kit for that. It's got everything you need to get started including char cloth, dried fungus, bark, feather stick, striker and two decent chunks of flint. There is a bundle of dry straw for making a birds nest and it blows to a flame really well. I've been using a ferro rod to start fires for a while but I think this is fast becoming my favourite method. The only downside is you need to buy a separate pouch to keep this in if you are going into the field as the cardboard box isn't weatherproof - but then again that's another skill for me to work on: pouch making! I've been a customer of Woodland Ways for a few years now. I've bought two axes, a couple of knives and some sharpening gear from them over the years and they are always dependable service wise with fast delivery. Thanks again Woodland Ways!

Professional and friendly service. The flint and steel is excellent. With a small bundle of fire starting items. I'm happy with it.

GunZenBomZ; I've got a few steel & flint kits & it was nice to have supported a traditional supplier which really did cover all the natural substances you'd be navigated too. From an experienced user, however most people would use char-cloth for catching the ember.
