    I just got a random package from a Ken from a end Oregon. It included flint and a steel striker. I have looked through all of my inbox messages, and never remember talking to this person let alone giving them my address. I want to say thank you. But I don’t know who to thank.

    Never mind I figured it out @kcardwel sent me a striker and some flint. This was unexpected and super generous! Thank you so much!

    Looks like the flint and steel fairy hit you up.
    Those are great strikers, I’ve heard. I do not own one, but everyone brags about his work.

    Thank you all; it was really @pellegrino that initiated and paid for it though. But do hope it works very well. Proud to be making this type of striker and having fun with the one I made myself. That yellow jasper is fine stuff.
