    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?

    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?

    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?
