    Agreed. I can show it to my son and tell him "One day son, this awl will be yours".

    That's the combo awl / blanket pin / flint striker that some of the folks have mentioned in this thread.

    It's an ingenious idea for combinatorial, multitool utility.

    If you made some of these, Lisa ... I would be very interested!
    in some old books these are also called cloak pins. the pin also works as a good awl or marlin spike in a pinch. i like that striker combo idea!

    I'd totally love a folding firegrate/grill. Strong enough to support a pot, with the bars close enough to grill a Burger or steak.

    I have a design I came up with. But don't have the skills or tools yet.

    Blame Tapatalk 2 for typos.

    Indeed. The Celtic term - "penannular" describes said pins or brooches as well.

    You can Wikipedia said term for more information ...

    I Either run a strap and carabiner around the tree or square lash limb to a tree no damage to the tree and no worries about trying to pull it out.

    I second the request for mouse hawks. I would love a quality mouse hawk for my kids to use. also I would like to see arrow heads and small spear points that could double as a cutting edge. something like the ESEE arrow head but forged.

    Yes, don't damage a live tree unless absolutely necessary.

    I would like to see a socket handle knife about the size of the discontinued cold steel Mini Bushman.

    The blanket pin/awl/striker is nice also.

    four-sided awl, maybe from 1/8 stock, long enough for an antler handle.

    i like the blanket pin idea, i actually made one of these on Sunday (we built our forge on Saturday!!!!) and it was pretty easy to make, it is the only thing i have made and i didn't struggle at all with it, i have a small railroad track anvil, a ok sledge and some regular pliers, so it doesn't require a lot, here is a pic of mine, i have xl hands if that helps you put it in perspective, it works awesome though, and one side (on the left botton) is ground flat for a striker.

    it makes a cool gift, i plan to make one for one of my bushcraft friends
