    This hand forged round striker may be smaller than you are accustomed to. However, it is an extremely accurate reproduction that showers sparks. 

    Fun fact: the flint is shaving off small pieces of the striker and the energy transfer creates the spark.

    Put the striker in your cart then make sure to pick up some extra flints.

    Historically correct Oval strikers

    Because I'm A blacksmith myself I have NOT bought one of these strikers. I have a small keg of them to give as gifts. However, when we're concerned with the fur trade this oval striker is an extremely period correct tool that goes back to the Roman period and from then until not so much as matches were invented, but until matches became very common as far into the wilds as the hunting camps on the Arctic sea ice and the Gauchos in Argentina in the twentieth century. While most of the early steels were case hardened, modern steels are high carbon steel that has been bent in an oval and then forge welded. That's not the easiest thing to do because the temperature between welding and burning up of high carbon steel therefore making it useless is a fine line. The pictures I've seen have no signs of burning, so it seems that the smith knows what they are about. Good job
