    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. IMG_3222.jpg

    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.

    Nice work! Made some of these years ago they are good fun, and a great trick if you lose or wreck a sheath out in the field

    Plenty of ways to change it up with toher materials too, horn, wood, bark etc. Got me thinking of some strange ways now. lol
