There is indeed an Italian book on fire steels. Called appropbriatly enough 'Fire Steels' . If you can find it, it will run upwards to $275.00 +. I am fortunate enough to have a copy and consider it the bible on the subject.
It gives a whole history of steels, and the color plates of the authurs collection are fantastic. The Museum of the Fur Trade also has a back issue of the 'Fur Trade Quarterly' that deals mainly with this subject as far as Colonial America and the Fur Trade is concerened. I forget just which back issue it is.
