    Marble with a sharp edge works just as good. When you hit the flint with the steel your trying to cut the steel with the flints sharp edge. When you get it at the right angle at the right speeds the metal shavings fly off as sparks. To start a fire use char cloth to catch the sparks. Ive started fires with flint and Id have to say magnifying glasses are easier. Flint is just a gray smooth rock. You could also buy a magnesium flint bar which sparks better then any natural rock.

    Look on the ground.
    There is no greater solitude than that of the Tracker in the forest, unless perhaps it's that of the wolf in the wilderness.

    Here's a post I did some time back. It has some good information on rocks that can be used to start fire.

    dang Rick and Ridge, I immediately thought "just contact Hanna Barbera" when I saw the thread title show up.
    some fella confronted me the other day and asked "What's your problem?" So I told him, "I don't have a problem I am a problem"
