got a couple of packages from BeaverBushcraft today, a traditional snail striker (a Scottish design) by Bethel forge, slow matches long spills (sulfur matches), bees wax candles and a very nice little possibles pouch. I bought the pouch just to see how his compared to what I am making and it was on special.
Mark also included some very nice flints, again very appreciative of his generosity for this.
Just got these two today, very surprised as the roman sled was added in as a gift. The MOABFireRock damascus persian is a beautiful and unique striker unlike any I own. Came with two very nice sized flints
and adding in some better pics showing the damascus pattern a bit better
the Persian is fantastic and I have already fallen for it.
My current Kirkham strikers, I still have a custom (that I designed my self) currently in the process of being forged and I have talked to Andy about getting an over-sized R type forged as well, but these three are currently the one's I have.
These are the best strikers I own, along with my Olivemead's
R type, English Medieval and 17th century Austrian, again sitting on some Aussie grey and black flint
my three D&B Primitive Forgeworks strikers, I probably won't be getting anymore from him as I have all the one's I want from him now, though he does have a drop point knife striker that I really like and as I have no combo knife/strikers in my collection currently I may get one down the track a bit.
