I really enjoy making historical firesteels. They have been in use for centuries and virtually everyone oned one or several to make fires. .... The one shown is the French style firesteel, made from part of an old high carbon steel file.

Real nice. Great to see a reuse of an old file as well. So many end up a knives at the forge. Your creation carries on a historical flavor and an important tool in any survival situation as well. Thanks for posting your work.
