highly anticipated, my Kirkham custom Kings Crown, designed by me and made by one of the best smiths, finally found my favorite striker.

2 replacement ferro rod/flint striker combos from BeaverBushcraft, these are my preferred striker now if I am not using my HSS striker on ferro rods

just ordered this and really looking forward to it arriving, from the same smith who did the one above (damascus striker) ramshead damascus striker, Adam is a really talented smith and is doing strikers unlike any I have seen.


he also has some beautiful flint (I actually think it is chalcedony) for sale I am going to have to get, though it is US$15 of each piece so holding off at the moment. It would be too nice to strike on I am thinking.

US$15 …. I'll sell you stuff like that for AU $10 …. or you could just do a ebay search for "agate geode slice" and get your own for a couple of bucks ...

… get something FIRE coloured, they work best !

my Brinkworth Smithy collection (formally known as Olivemead), I now have a version of each of John's strikers (FS-1,2,3,4 and 5) and his knife/striker combo, sitting on a bed of Aussie flint.

These are among the best strikers I own and spark incredibly well.

definitely the last striker I am buying, had to get this one, unlike any I have. Bronze striker kit, by Jean the Hornmaster
