Fire steel of the Viking Age after a find from Birka.

Here you can buy a typical fire steel, also called a fire club, which was made according to a Viking Age find from Birka.

The boat-shaped form of this fire steel is very typical for the Viking Age, but was also used by the Germanic tribes and in the Middle Ages.

As in the Viking Age, the fire steel is forged by hand from carbonaceous iron and is today, as it was then, an indispensable utensil for traditional fire making with flint and tinder.

The simple elegance, its forged, matt black surface and the elegantly rolled-up ends make even such a simple utensil as this Viking-era fire steel a small piece of art.

The fire steel is of very good quality and produces sparks particularly easily, making it easy to start a fire with the appropriate tinder material. Here you will also find the flint necessary for making a fire.

Dimensions of the fire steel: 10 x 4 x 0.5 cm.

The fire steel is big enough so that even a man can reach into the fire steel with his fingers and they are well protected from the sharp flint edge.

In addition to this large fire steel from the Viking Age, you can also buy a fire steel in smaller size, as well as replicas of fire steels from the early and late Middle Ages and a replica of a Roman fire steel.



With dry tinder, flint and a certain amount of practice, a spark can be created by striking the fire steel evenly, which, with a bit of luck, lights up the dry tinder. Through steady, careful blowing, the first, delicate glow soon turns into a small flame that is able to light the kitchen fire.
Dried birch sponge fungus is suitable as tinder, which is also frayed a little, along with bulrush and fine birch paper.
Flint, which can be found all along the German Baltic coast, is used as flint.
