One Must Be Patient

I tried out the flint and steel as soon as I got it. About 10% of the strikes yielded a visible spark, and about 10% of those yielded an ember on the charred lamp wick. So you can get an ember with this kit. Experimenting with a file, it was no better at sparking than the supplied steel striker. The sharp edges of the supplied flint were gone after about 5 ignitions, so I found some quartz that seems to work (but not as well).

I experimented with char cloth. I cut a dead terrycloth washrag into pieces that would fit into an Altoids tin. I cooked the rags in the tin until no more smoke and flames were coming out. The resulting charcloth is a bigger target for the spark and seems to be very efficient at catching the spark and producing the ember.

Of course, a glowing ember is not a fire. I am not David West. So I got some sulfur at the garden supply store, melted a bit of it, and dipped the end of some Starbuck's sticks. The resulting matches produce flame almost immediately when touched to the glowing ember. No bird's nest needed.

I went solar with the charred lamp wick. First with a magnifying glass, then with the polished bottom of a diet coke can. I recommend Flitz metal polish to get the mirror finish you need. Then I did the same with an Arizona Iced Tea can (slightly larger reflector than Diet Coke). In all cases, I was able to get the glowing ember on the charred lamp wick.

Generally, I am delighted with the kit, and amazed that I was able to make it work. It is fun to play with fire!

Amateur getting great results with flint and steel from SRO

After some practice, I'm showering sparks with the flint and steel using char cloth and charred oil lamp wick!!!! I'm really loving the flint and steel method and feel confident that the quality of this SRO product is great and I shouldn't have a problem in a situation, if it should arise!!! Thanks SRO!!
