Introduction: How to Make a Simple Firesteel

It's my first instructable so please bear with us. At first I must stress that the guide was made for another site but it is entirely my.
It's in polish so I'm so sorry for that but everything is clearly shown on film.

If you don't konw anything, tell me about it in comment I'll try to reply.

Rate it!

what are you string against it a knife blade, saw blade?

kondzio29 (author)mdog932010-11-12

it's paper knife

kondzio29 (author)kondzio292010-11-12

oh, sorry in yours language is utility knife (in polish it's paper knife anyway)

mdog93 (author)kondzio292010-11-12

yes i think that shape of blade looks like it's for a craft knife. are you striking with the sharp edge or the back of the blade?

kondzio29 (author)mdog932010-11-13

this is the back of the blade

mdog93 (author)kondzio292010-11-14

ok thank you, presumeably you're using cigarette lighter flints. I was thinking about making / getting one of these.

I might make one with this method but i'm not sure how long the flints would stay in for- how long has yours lasted?

kondzio29 (author)mdog932010-11-15

I'm glad that someone like my idea

my flints tough five months of intense fun

mdog93 (author)kondzio292010-11-15

ok that's fairly good. I'm thinking though i wouldn't want to keep a knife blade in my pocket firstly because it might cut me, secondly it would ruin my clothes.

I'm guessing that any fairly thin piece of metal would work. i' thinkin of mayeb a hacksaw blade with the teeth ground off. You think that would work?

kondzio29 (author)mdog932010-11-15

After you made it try with different metal

mdog93 (author)kondzio292010-11-15

yeah, will do, i'll let you know what works and what doesn't

kondzio29 (author)mdog932010-11-16

ok thanks

Don,t try this at home (author)2010-11-14

Can you please do your next instructable in english and whatever language that is bucause i would really like to make this but i cant read this.

I could write a dictionary or an explanation in the description of the video.
I have seven guides in polish :(
