Looking back through the threads I realized Offtrail hasn't posted in a while....


I like this. I think a smaller version using the UST micro spark wheel would be awesome. Maybe longer for more capacity.

Will it hold an ember hot enough to use as a shepherds lighter(tinder tube)?

yup...

I've made a tinder-tube or "shepherd's lighter," before, but the prospects of hauling a half-pound Bic substitute is probably not in the cards for me.....no matter how COOL 😎 it looks! :lol:
