i got mine at walgreens, an 8 pack i think of ronson flints, for lighters, but they are also the same as lantern sparker flints, and it was a couple bucks. you could order online probably, or check out even a drug store or convenience store where someone might get a new flint for a lighter.

If you have lighters that run out of fluid prematurely, you can take those flints out also.

and if worst comes to worst you can buy cheap lighters and take out the flints to revive a zippo or other nicer lighter.

its definitely worth it, they're cheap and you get a cool little butane cartridge to mess with and tweak til it shoots out a footlong flame. lots of fun. plust you get a flint, what could be better?
