Had a bit of time this weekend so thought I would put it to good use and make a sheath I bought from the Identity Store shop in Matlock in May. Pretty easy to make following the instructions and made a template out of paper first. Then flushed with success I decided to finally learn how to start a fire using flint and steel. The flint pieces have come from various drives and paths as the Midlands is not strewn with flint nodules so I made the best of what I could find. After a bit of practise and char cloth I made earlier (I know a bit Blue Peter) it worked and I finally managed to get the coal to a flame. Sorry no pics of this as I was to busy clearing the smoke and tears from my eyes. So all in all a good weekend and all done in my back garden. Riven.
