General Information on Fire From Flint & Steel

              From the Iron Age onwards, the use of flint and steel was one of the most common methods of fire lighting along with the Fire piston, prior to the invention of the friction match. Traditionally a flint and steel were used; however, the flint was not the most important part. Any hard, non-porous rock that has a sharp edge, or even some petrified woods can be used to create sparks. The spark comes from quickly shaving small pieces of steel off the hardened steel striker; the finely divided metals ignite immediately in air, with the steel curls burning an intense yellow-white heat. Char cloth is usually used as an intermediate step between the striking and the tinder, in order to more easily catch a spark. After the ember is created in the char cloth, it is then usually placed inside a ball of fine, fluffy tinder and blown on which after a few strong blows should develop flames.
