Hand-forged fire steel should not be missing in backpack of any adventurer. Take also a compass or survival knife along. You will find all in our offer. And when fire burns, you will heat soup up in one of our forged caldrons.

Hand-forged fire steel is a piece of high carbon or alloyed steel. The fire steel is quickly rubbing against a sharp edge of hard flint. A swarf is separated thanks to this process and so warm and visible spark is generated. The spark has to hit the tinder. Then the spark is blown up and fire is generated. Tinder and flint are not included.  But you will find them in the woods.

Enjoy making fire with our hand-forged fire steels!

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

Do you make custom-sized chain mail armor?

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
