In my possibles bag I carry a small (6P-8P) nail which I had ground the point end flat then put in a vise with about 1/8" sticking out. I then take a file and put a bit of a step on the end of the nail about 1/16" of a bit more. 
This step is placed on the edge of the flint and tapped with your ball starter to nap off a tiny bit of the flint.  Just move along the edge tapping as you go and you'll have a nice sharp flint.
