Matthew Walker Knot Brush/Comb Holder
1/2"  manila rope
I tied this circa 1966.  I was on board my first US Navy ship.  I admired the knot work of a boatswain's mate and he introduced me to knot tying.  My wife recently discovered it in an old storage box.

With a stiff enough rope fiber that would make a fine flintlock brush to clean the pan out and get debris off of the metal around the touch hole.
