Howdy outdoor enthusiasts,
When crafting a fire, I've always used a lighter to ignite my tinder. I want to make the transition to the fire steel, but I had a few questions about which ones are better. I'll just list my concerns and hope some of you can help me out. There's a lot of good knowledge in these forums, and I've been soaking it all up.
2. Which brand/type of steel should I carry?
3. Is it necessary to carry the striker that comes with them, or will my BK14 work sufficiently? My 14 isn't stripped, so will I need to remove the coating from the spine for it to strike properly?
That's about all the questions I have concerning the fire steels, please leave me any additional information about them that might be beneficial. I appreciate the feedback and love learning all I can.
Thanks and stay sharp!
