Firesteel No. 5 (Small Viking)

This hand-forged firesteel is a precise replica of the kind of firesteel that would have been typically encountered throughout much of medieval Scandinavia. It is a slightly smaller version of a classic striker design favored by the majority of the Viking hordes of the Middle Ages. Its size makes it a perfect choice for those with smaller hands, such as women and children.

During this period of history, even children were expected to be able to make a fire under any environmental conditions. It is with this in mind that we at Flint and Steel have forged our high carbon firesteels. They are of such high quality that even the most inexperienced camper will be able to produce sparks hot enough to light a fire outdoors.

When producing our firesteels for use as part of the flint and steel fire making method, we use the very same natural methods that our ancestors would have done. We have stuck to using tried-and-tested traditional materials such as charcoal to fire our furnaces and fresh spring water to quench our steel. If you want to find the best firesteel for use in the traditional way, then look no further!

Each of our high carbon firesteels comes with a complimentary piece of flint to enable you to generate sparks right from the get-go. We recommend this small firesteel as the best outdoors gift for use by younger campers under adult supervision.
