    8-15 fire snakes

    Summer is settling in but the days are getting shorter. I found these two snakes basking out by the pond today.

    I have two more fire snakes to offer up today:

    Number 3 Small size $28 - $5 shipping= $33 total

    8-15 #3.jpg

    Number 4 Large size $30 plus $5 shipping= $35 total

    8-15 #4.jpg

    (The numbered blocks are 3/8 inches square for scale)

    Here's the group:

    These fire steels will fit happily in an Altoids tin, and like to nestle down in some shredded jute, maybe nibble on some nice charred cloth. They wont bite, but they will strike! If you'd like one for your own, just let me know the number by PM.

    Paypal preferred (G&S), but if you want to pay another way, we can work it out. I'll ship anywhere in CONUS, cost included. Outside that area, we can work out actual shipping costs.

    I am shipping these steels with a piece of black English flint and some charred cloth to get you started with some instant gratification. Below is a sample:

    If you do adopt one, please be careful and give it a try outside with the char cloth. I don't want to be part of burning down anybody's domicile...

    Also, the steel in these has been hardened and that can make them brittle, like a file and it is possible they can break if they get dropped on a hard surface or tossed at a rock, do please treat them with care. They will hold up to normal striking just fine. I recommend adding a lanyard to them.

    I'll be checking back around the den and see if I can find any more snakes to offer up in the near future.
    Got a feeling I will find some more.

    I've had very good feedback on my strikers.

    Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately, I am not taking orders for these. I need to comply with the the rules of the forum which, as I understand, don't allow hobbyists to take orders for items that are not ready to sell.

    I do tag folks who have indicated interest. I realized that doesn't help a lot when they go fast like this. I will continue to forge these, so eventually I hope everyone who wants can adopt their own.

    Keep your eyes peeled and your tinder dry.
