Scottish style flint strikers

Mike Ameling

These flint strikers are based upon an original in the Byant and May Museum of Fire-Making Appliances. The unique part is that the British museum actually classified it as a Scottish style instead of just giving it that generic "British" or "English" classification. They also said that it was ... more decorative than our local ones, and probably influence by their dealings with France and Flanders where it is common. The Museum also identified another style/shape as an Irish flint striker.
