These are a couple wood spirits carved in poplar.  The steels are from firesteel.com 1/4" x 3".

They are both available for fire kits.

Enjoy.

I moved this to the classifieds. Nice looking work! Someone will have a wise looking companion in their pocket. :)

Okay Boss.


I guess I will add then that they are $30 each shipped to CONUS.  Outside that will be a bit extra.

Can you use a thicker rod? BTW, no fire was started with matches during my 4 day camping trip over the Labor Day weekend. Few folks tried your fire steel out and loved it. Thank you!

Land Cruiser I think the next rod up is a 3/8.  I had not thought to try one at that size since the 3/8 rods are much more expensive.

I might order a couple and see how they do.

I am glad your fellow's in the field enjoyed it, thank you!

Did you ever get those 3/8?
Title: Re: Spirit Steels
Post by: Buckskin on October 21, 2012, 11:57:37 AM
I have a few of them.  Yes.  Do you have something in mind?

Title: Re: Spirit Steels
Post by: land cruiser on October 21, 2012, 01:56:38 PM
Yep. Does it have to be a spirit? Can we do an animal or just piece of Burl?
Title: Re: Spirit Steels
Post by: Buckskin on October 21, 2012, 02:58:52 PM
I have no burl, but I could wood burn animals, figures, etc.  Simple is best.  I am not that skilled with a hot iron.

Here is an antelope I burned into a walking stick as an example.

If you have a piece of burl you want to use you could send it to me and we can work from there also.

I like the one on the left. Let's do it.

Post by: Buckskin on October 23, 2012, 07:01:34 PM
Sounds good.  Do I have license for the length of the handle?  Or do you like the 3" handle on the one you have?

The Red steel is gone now. 

I am willing to take orders for any that one made.  After Christmas I will likely make a few more to have on hand, but I prefer commissioned work (don't we all?)

Thanks all!
