Forged a small fire steel from a hay rake tooth. I think it throws sparks better than any I have made. I put it in an Altoids-type tin along with some char cloth (tinder), jute twine (kindling) and a piece of flint. I’ve got some pictures of me starting a fire with flint and steel somewhere…if I can find them I will post them later.
