The REEL Striker is a multi-functional fire steel made from High carbon steel. It is a versatile striker/tool which is great for any fire/survival kit. The striking edge is differentially heat treated to ensure a proper temper for throwing sparks AND maintain its overall strength and durability! There is a “divot” pre-drilled into the striker to be used as a hand bearing block when making friction fire with bow and drill. The overall shape can be used to store snare wire, fishing line, or jute cord. When The REEL Striker is secured to a stick or pole, it makes a great makeshift fishing system! Secure to a short pole for ice fishing/jigging or fishing in small creeks. Secure it to a longer pole with eyelets to cast and retrieve lures! The REEL Striker will fit in an Altoids tin for a small fire kit or emergency fishing kit. The REEL Striker was designed by Jamie L. Burleigh and made by Dan Ferguson at Jeff White Bladesmiths.
