Whether you are a novice Boy Scout or a seasoned huntsman, you no doubt recognize the importance of being able to make a fire to keep warm and to cook food while out in the wilderness. Perhaps you are even well-versed in multiple ways of making camp fires without having to depend on modern tools and materials. If so, you have probably heard of tool kits containing a flint and steel fire striker, used in one of the most primitive and yet reliable ancient fire starting methods.
Choosing A Fire Striker Kit
A flint and steel fire striker kit consists of several components, each of which must be of the highest quality if you are to make a fire quickly and effortlessly. Of course, such kits must contain a piece of flint or another hard type of stone suitable for the production of sparks when used in conjunction with a steel fire striker. It can be difficult to source the right kinds of stones in many parts of the world, so it's important to find a fire striker kit that provides them.
Making Your First Fire With A Fire Striker
Even if you have plenty of experience of making fires with different tools and methods, it's always wise to get to grips with new approaches before you go out into the woods. This is a golden rule even with kits that are as easy to use as one containing a flint and steel fire striker is. The best tool kits are always those which come with clear, illustrated instructions so that the user can get the absolute best out of their new tools and materials.
Learning How To Use A Fire Striker
When you're learning any new skill, it's always best to start off in a comfortable and safe environment.

After all, you don't want to try it out for the first time when you're out in the forest, desperately cold and hungry as you struggle to get a fire going. The flint and steel approach is simple, easy and reliable once you get the hang of it, but you must make sure that you can confidently and quickly light a fire before you go out into the wilderness.
