|The FireSteel.com Mountain Man FireSteel
A mountain man living nearly 200 years ago would have used a firesteel just like this!
For well over a thousand years before the advent of matches, firesteels like the FireSteel.com Mountain Man FireSteel were used to start fires.
Time was that everyone from housewives to outdoorsmen and mountain men knew how to use a firesteel.
Now you too can try your hand at starting fires in the way that has been use for many centuries. These firesteels are custom made by a master blacksmith in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Each Mountain Man high carbon firesteel comes with a flint striker that is composed of a beautiful piece of Jasper that I prospect in the mountains of the Great North woods. This same jasper was used by Palo-Indians to fashion spear points and arrowheads some 10,000 years ago.
Jasper is a very hard rock that breaks into sharp edges that are perfect for making sparks when struck by a Mountain Man firesteel.
