Make a fire using flint and steel with Zombie Tinder's Large Pioneer Char Tin.
The Large Pioneer Char Tin is perfect for the advanced flint and steel master as well as the novice with a desire to learn the art of flint and steel. The custom made, hand-forged striker is tempered perfectly to throw the maximum amount of sparks while sitting comfortably within your grasp. Our high-carbon steel striker (58-61 HRC) will produce sparks for nearly a lifetime, even with frequent use.
We use the highest quality flint rock available. This is the same quality flint that was used by Native American tribes to fashion knives and arrow heads. Our flint rock is **EXTREMELY** sharp, so please take caution while using it. However, this extreme sharpness is needed to scrape the steel properly in order to generate the maximum amount of sparks.
The char we use is of the highest, premium quality. We use a blend of natural oil and ginned cotton to produce a char that will take even the weakest spark. Then, it will smolder slow and VERY hot to lend more time to get that tinder bundle ablaze. We also include about 6 feet of natural jute twine to use as tinder. Just separate out the fibers and form into what would resemble a birds nest for a good source of tinder. The 3 ounce push-top tin can be reused to make more char, time and time again. We also include a tough and durable RANGER band to insure the tin remains closed.
