Fire Strikers for you adventure types

It's probably a bit of a stretch over here, but I figured some of you adventurers may be interested in hand made fire strikers. They produce loads of sparks and more importantly look cool. Start a bbq pit, camp fire or just use it to annoy your spouse and kids. Check out the options at Suffolk Metal Works Use Coupon ADVRIDER for five bucks off.

just about any carbon steel with a square edge will work with the rods. stainless can be used, but in my experience it doesnt create as big of a shower of sparks.

Been trying to figure out how to work with micarta and phenolic resins. Wow, tough stuff that is very sensitive to tool speeds and can create some wicked dust. I just posted a bunch to the Suffolk Metal Works storefront. Thanks for looking.

Here's a sample of the new stuff:



To answer the what to use as a scraper: Any sharp edge works. A knife works well. One of those carbide lawn mower blade sharpeners works really well, and a belt sander with a 120 grit belt works AWESOME!!!!

BTW, the knife is by Andy Roy at Fiddleback Forge.

The mailman (can you still say that? MailMAN) was good to me today!
My fire stick arrived and I'm super eager to bust it out and impress my buds.
Just gotta figure out how to use it.
Ha ha Canadian can't make fire with out a match. Damn, Probts would be rolling his eyes if he saw me trying to "make fire."
You know - Survivor?
Never mind, tough crowd.

Use a piece of hacksaw blade 3" or 4" long. They are made of hard steel and has both a smooth and a serrated side. Bonus - it has a hole on the end for a piece of paracord to keep the kit together.

Just added some new fire steels and a new striker so you don't have to have to use a beat up hacksaw blade.

Here's the site: www.suffolkmetalworks.com
