an emergency 'flint' for flint and steel use

I saw Dan’s video yesterday too, thought it was a great idea to “keep in your toolbox” (as he says!). I’ve come across a few areas up here where, surprisingly, rocks are hard to come by. Sure, a 15 minute walk would probably have me back in rock territory, but if (and it’s a bloody big ‘if’!) I did find myself in an emergency situation in the rockless mud pit, this is a great bit of knowledge to have.
