Been wantin ta do a new one. Found some used quality file handles at a fleamarket an bought all the feller had.

Bored out the top an put a button compass up there an gorilla glued a 5/16 firesteel in the bottom. Still workin on it, but yall will get the idea from this:





Thinkin bout addin some sort a decoration on that handle but ain't decided what yet. Also gotta decide how I"m gonna mount the striker to it if I decide ta go that route.

When I got all the thinkin done, I'll give it a light sand an a couple a coats a tongue oil fer a finish.

Its been a while since you last posted on this. I just watched a video on using FireSteel in wintertime to make a fire and remembered that you had wrote something 'bout it.

A bit of a "surprise, the fire is started" video, I got a giggle outta it!

In my humble opinion it looks fine the way it is, Coot. Looks like a professional tool, with its beauty lying in its functionality.
