I do sale them for £18. I also sale them with a leather pouch, so you can carry the stone and the steel wool as well (see attached photo).As for the video. I am so technically challenged so it will take me a while to do it. Just look on YouTube, plenty videos about it.
Yes you are clear (I think). I do the jig to avoid the needs of using cooling down one side in order to round the other side. The jig make the striker perfect symmetrical in one heat (I do forge it by the way).Maybe with more experience I can do it (in one go) without a jig. But, the truth is that I don't do it that often and can't accumulate enough experience for to do it (perfect and efficient ) without the jig.
Hi I an sorry not to replay sooner. I did try but from some reason my reply didn't register itself.However, when you strike the steel on the (sharp)edge of a flint stone (or quartz/granite) you generate sparks. If you put, say, very fine steel wool near the sparks, the wool will ignite and you can start fire with it.There are many YouTube video about it.
