Pocket Fire Striker Kit
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:02:05 PM »
Haven't made of of these in a long time, but needed a new one. The leather pouch is 3" x 2 3/4" of 4oz carving leather, stained with light brown Tandy oil dye, and sewn with linen thread. The file decorated striker is 1095 steel, secured with a 3/32" steel rod, and peened on the ends. Inside is a small tinder tube unit and a large musket flint. Period correct for 19th c. and maybe 18th c. Hope you enjoy a look.

That is super nice! You can't lose the striker with this unless you lose the whole kit!

I like it. I can do that ... in my dreams.  :bow
The trouble with doing things right the first time is no one realizes how hard it was.
Often, however, the following is more applicable.
I stand corrected, a position somewhat painful to achieve, but once there, is quite satisfying.
