Fishy - posted last tuesday (with some extra flint)!
There seems to be some PO go slow on this batch but please let me know if they do not turn up by the end of the week and I will send one from my next batch - I am out of steel at the moment and awaiting delivery so it may be a while!

I highly recommend these, nice wee pouch, and decent charcloth made from towelling I believe. Pretty easy to get decent sparks, although I have yet to get fire with anything other than charcloth, although I haven't tried very hard.

"Dragons' Breath" (as you all have started calling them) Kits
Basic Flint and Steel Fire Starter Kits

These are proving very popular!

Simple, functional and of a design based on archeological finds.Hold one of the pieces of supplied flint in your left hand (if you are left handed) with a sharp edge horizontal and facing away from you (like pointing a knife away from you with the blade on its side with the cutting edge facing right)
Hold a piece of the supplied char cloth on top, about 1mm from the sharp edge, using your thumb, with one or more fingers supporting the flint underneath.
Hold the steel in a pinch grip with one of the long thin edges pointing out.
With a "snapping" wrist actionstrike the steel onto the flint so that it scrapes its length down the flint to scrape off steel shards which are the sparks you want.
The sparks should land on the char cloth and start glowing.
Put the flint and steel down, wrap the charcloth in a tube of the finest slice of birch polypore you can slice off the fungus supplied(or sandwich the charcloth between two or more slivers...)hold this carefully or use the jaws of your leatherman pliers/two twigs, and blow steadily. the polypore should soon burst into flames.
I am confident with a little practice you will get the hang of the technique.
All kits are tested before despatch so I am confident in them working.
If you cannot get it to work I will happily refund your dosh or send you a replacement set.

Comprising a piece of steel, taken from selected High Carbon Steel files and ground smooth on the edges for safe and effective sparking, selected pieces of natural flint, pieces of Charcloth and slices of Birch Polypore Fungus, all contained in one of my size 1 pouches (colours vary) all for the new price of only £7 inc P&P.
(Contains no actual Dragon. Less than 1% fat. Made in an environment that definately contains nuts - me!)
Colours sizes and shapes vary - this is just a typical set!
NEW STOCK JUST MADE!
14 sets available
PM me for more info and to order.

Welsh Bushcrafter Leather Pouches.
Although these pouches are made less than a dozen miles from where legend has it that the last dragon in Wales was killed there is no truth in the tale that they are made from BRIMSTONE TANNED DRAGON HIDE.
In fact they are mainly made from recycled, garment quality, leathers of various grades and finishes, by an under-employed Bushcrafter of a British ethnic origin, in a workroom almost in view of where King Arthurs sons are said to have died during the hunt of the Great Black Boar.
The purchase price of the leather generally goes directly to charity

The sizes are as before - and the quality is the same as well!
Size 1 - Flat, D shaped 7x5 inches
Size 2 - 2.5 x 2.5 x 8 inches
Size3 - 3 x 3 x 10 inches
Size 4 - 3.5 x 3.5 x 11 inches
Size 5 - 4 x 4 x 12 inches.
