    I wouldn't worry Andy will get back to you. Factor in the time difference and this annoying thing called work which gets in the way of our Bushcraft.

    I had to wait about a week for mine as he'd sold out and was busy making more.

    I had two of these ( see earlier thread ) extremely happy all round. However, yesterday was the first chance to put them before two novice students... one had sparks flying from the off and smouldering charcloth after about 10 strikes. The other just needed a bit of guidance on strike angle and was also sparking like a good 'un thereafter.

    Thats what they are supposed to do, so why the comment? Anyone who has tried various such set ups will have concluded not all are created equal. To have such first off results with complete novices speaks volumes.

    Many thanks.

    I would really be interested to hear what you think of my steel. I put a lot of effort into hardening them right so it's not only the shape that matters. Cheers! :)

    That's great news, getting the angles right is the most difficult, the rest is adrenalin rushing not to burn your fingers!!! :D
    Good students they are if they get it so easy! :)

    :yikes::yikes: Anyone sitting on the fench about this should get one before they go away for a while, maybe. You won't regret it, Andy makes a great striker.
