For the purposes of this family project, Vladimir had to remember a skill that he once possessed, long ago. In each fire making kit, there is a firesteel made by his own hand. Whether it's winter or summer, he can be found in his workshop making old forms of firesteels, as found in books and drawings. This has since become his favorite task, one in which his desire to make something with his own hands and his interest in ancient fire making processes meet. "Once we had made the first of our firesteels and it produced a spark, we thought of expanding our scope and so we set up the production of old firesteels for our kits," Vladimir says. As a result, the ancient process recreated by means of the "Old Firesteel" project came alive and became quite real for all involved.
