Flint and Steel Kit - £11 inc mainland UK P+P















These kits come with a forged carbon steel striker that is approximately 8.5cm long with textured sides to make it easy to grip without slipping and a curved face to reduce the chance of the bottom edge catching during striking. Also supplied with a lump of flint and charcloth all contained in a woven drawstring bag. These steels are forged in-house by the Survival School Bristol team and the high carbon steel means they throw great sparks.

Matt was an excellent instructor who led the group well throughout the day with consideration to the pace of the learning and what we actually did. He is a very personable sort of guy who quickly established a warm rapport with us and without doubt was extremely knowledgable about his subject which he taught with confidence and passion. He even had to contend with a biblical style downpour right in the middle of the day! He took it all in his stride and continued to motivate and interest us with a wide scope of topics that I had given him for the group to get stuck into. I will definitely recommend him to others and will try and organise another day with him later in the year.
