How To Hand Forge Your Own Steel Flint Striker

Learning new skills and how to do things for ourselves is a HUGE part of our lifestyle.  Another big part of our lifestyle is sharing our knowledge with others.  Today, the Mountain Man takes you into his smithy and shows you how to hand forge your own steel flint striker.

For those of you that would much rather purchase such an item versus making your own, you can find the Mountain Man’s hand forged handy work for sale here and his innovative fabrications here.

The Mountain Man recorded a Blacksmithing Class 101 which will be available in August at  You can signup for our list to be notified when the doors officially open and the class is available here.

We find that there is nothing more rewarding than using a piece from your kit out in the wilderness that you hand forged yourself!  The Mountain Man has many additional videos on Blacksmithing in our playlist here.

We hope you enjoyed these DIY videos and got something out of them.  If you haven’t subscribed to our YouTube channel yet, you can do so here.

P.S.  My apologies on the delay on the posting time of this blog post- my laptop is not making my life easy right now and I am on a wing and a prayer each day on how it will cooperate…
