I need to get some skill with flint & steel, although the steel I have won't spark worth a darn. My fires have always been made with matches...

Could be the rock you are using. Is it flint or cheat?

I've used various pieces of flint, also some chert. Even the flint which came with the steel wouldn't spark. And I bought it about 30 years ago, so it's too late to complain! :lol: :lol: :lol:
