Elddon Swedish Fire-lighting Kit
£59.00

A classic ‘elddon’ (tinder-box) natural fire-lighting kit from the forests of Swedish Lapland consisting of a hand-forged fire striker steel, a couple of pieces of flint, some amadou tinder - made by treating and drying the fungus Fomes fomentarius — and prized since ancient times for its nourishment of fire (even being found on the Hauslabjoch mummy), some year dried grass, ‘fat-wood’ — resinous shavings from pine stumps, as well as charcloth — highly flammable blackened linen. An excellent introductory kit.

£59.00 (Ex Tax:£49.17)
