    I saw that Smokey Mountain Knife Works has gun flints on sale.
    50 bulk for $49.99

    12 framed for $19.99

    3 framed with musket ball $8.99
    https://www.smkw.com/3-gun-flints-brown-bess-musketball-set
    3 framed $6.99
    https://www.smkw.com/complete-set-of-gun-flints-all-3-colors

    Sure cheaper than the $24.99 to $27.99 that Cabelas charges for a 5 pack.

    Thought this might help out the flintlock guys along with the flint and steel guys.

    hello,
    I recall reading this sometime ago about the arsenal stored in Lagan Silikhana, the palace in Nepal, where more than 50,000 antique guns were stored, which was destroyed in an earthquake that caused so much devastation in Nepal. These flints are probably part of a cache from the arsenal, a little piece of the troubled history of Nepal. I'm unsure if the palace was rebuilt or restored to it's former glory? Googlefu :)
    Regards
    David
