Fire starting should be the backbone of any good preparations, and that is exactly why we’ve dubbed this, go anywhere striker, The Backbone Striker. Unlike our flagship striker, The Spark Gauge Striker, The Backbone Striker has a flat 90 degree grind angle that is gentle on the hands for users that find The Spark Gauge Striker, too aggressive for their liking. We’ve also decided to round both the top and bottom of the striker, allowing for those who prefer pocket carry, the ability to have their striker in their pockets, without fear of any sharp edges poking them. Don’t let the 90 degree angle fool you into think you’ll have a hard time starting a fire, using it. We still use the same premium 01 Tool steel in the construction and the same methods of forging as with, The Spark Gauge Striker. What you give up in versatility by using the 90 degree grind, you gain the ability to carry it without the need of a case, but if you decide to, The Backbone striker still fits easily within our Waterproof Cases, and is now available as an option when you order one of our Ultralight Fire Kits.
*NOTE* From The Forge Finish will always have variations between each striker. I hand select the ones that I feel are the most aesthetically pleasing out of each batch and set them aside to be used for these special, one of a kind strikers.
