A fellow out in St. Louis, Missouri sells the finest flints I have had the pleasure of using. His name is Rich Pierce and here's his information:
Made from local white to gray rock, these are rough, tough, and sparky.
1/2" wide x 5/8" long are $8 per dozen
5/8" wide x 3/4" long are $10 per dozen
3/4" wide x 7/8" long are $12 per dozen
7/8" wide x 1" long are $12 per dozen
1" wide x 1 1/8" long are $15 per dozen
1 1/8" wide x 1 1/4" long are $15 per dozen
Shipping & handling is generally $1 per dozen, more for larger sizes.
He'll need your name and address in an email with "flints" in the subject line, and he'll send you the flints for your inspection with an invoice. If they work for you, you can pay by check. If they aren't what you need, just return them to Rich, no questions asked. You can email him directly at: [email protected]
