I've been in contact with Kris Goodrich at Carnot Industries
about his Flint & Steel and Bow Drill products. He has agreed to contribute products for prizes in our monthly contest - how cool is that? Just click the "Prizes" link at the top of any page to enter.
Kris's story is pretty interesting. He and his two brothers worked through the ranks of scouting, from Cub Scouts to Eagle Scout. Kris got interested in primitive fire starting at scout camp in 1997 and they've now been selling 'Sparks Fly' kits since 2000. They started from scratch with a friend, a forge, an anvil, some coal, and a big dream. With that, they started producing flint & steel sets for their troop and then to sell.
Kris has continued to 'give back' to scouting by being a JASM and then Asst. Scoutmaster so providing products to build scouting skills naturally fits with his scouting life.
If you are thinking of Flint & Steel or Bow Drill sets for your troop, please consider supporting the business of some fellow Scouters.
