 Mini Tinderbox Hand Stitched Leather Pendant

Hi Mark, Thank you on multiple accounts.

1st... quick delivery brilliant .2nd the free extra tinder & flints unexpected and well appreciated.

3rd wow I just love the craftsmanship in the leather pendants, this has gone straight to the top of my favourite tinder pouches and i know it will be coming on many an adventure with me (fell walks/camping). I have so far found it surprisingly easy to use 4 out of 4 attempts successful so far. Although I can appreciate people with shovel sized hands might struggle at first but with a bit of practice would become a well-loved and cherished bit of kit.   The craftsmanship that’s gone into making this product will last a life time easily and I can admire & appreciate it's quality.  Regards, Scott. 18/11/2018

Hand Stitched Zippo Pouches  

Hi! Just received my Hudson Bay and Zippo pouches. Very pleased indeed. They are beautiful pieces of work, lovely to handle, superb.  

And free gifts! They're actually useful too! Brilliant. I feel quite spoiled! The Hudson Bay pouch is just right for the job I had in mind. The only drawback is that it really would look better with an appropriate tinder box inside . . ! So I guess I'm going to have to get one for it! Chuckle. I shall have a look shortly. I've been after a decent Zippo case for years. Most versions I've seen have press studs on the belt loop. Not particularly secure. Your versions are great. Proper leather, properly made. Built to last! Cool.It's a genuine pleasure dealing with you. I've found you approachable, honest and, of course, your broad knowledge and experience makes it all very interesting!Thanks again! Best regards, Alan 05/08/2018

The Irish Traditional Fire Steel

Just managed to avoid setting fire to me shorts. Lol.Seriously, I've had a few steels over 40-odd years, some broken, some stolen, some gifted away. This one is a delight and, assuming my son doesn't appropriate it, will be a much valued companion! The Irish style striker is a beautiful piece. I really like the way it sits on the hand. Lovely. I'm very pleased with how quickly it arrived too! AB 01/07/2018

Received my order today all in tip top condition, WOW I love the fire steels absolute craftsmanship at its best they are that good I am considering wearing one as a pendant just the perfect size. I have the eldstal fire steel bigger but no where near the quality of these. actually I think of you both every day when I fasten my shire horse belt with the matching belt pouch the craftsmanship and work that is in them shines out yes I love them real quality, Thank you Helen and Mark .Geoff 15/06/18

The black tobacco tin is great but I absolutely LOVE the mini tinderbox kit! Lots of big sparks from such a small striker and piece of flint (though not as tiny as the piece in your demo video; Impressive!). It is going to be a superb showing off kit and such great fun!!

Hi Mark, I meant to email you much earlier to let you know I received the order.

Mini Pocket Parabolic Solar Mirror with Leather Pouch + Tinder Bundle (85-5010) 

I'm happy to say your parabolic mirror arrived safely yesterday with accompanying tinder and sulphur matches. Given today's intense snow flurries I was not hopeful about trying it out, but we had a period of blue sky, so I had a chance to test it with a tin of charred punk wood. Despite a cold wind and a light dusting of snow falling, your mirror managed to create a good ember in less than a minute. Very impressive, given the adverse conditions, so this will be a permanent addition to my flint and steel kit. Thanks again for making good products.Kind regards,Gordon,Nottingham,18/03/2018

Dear Mark , Just to say that the sheaths arrived safely this afternoon:  thank you - they are absolutely magnificent.  I am out very early tomorrow and all day, but I will try to write something that does them justice.  You are, truly, an artist and craftsman of rare quality. With tremendous respect and very many thanks indeed. An imaginative designer and a gifted artist, I was impressed by a pouch I bought from his website, and asked him to create somewhat unusual custom sheaths for my two favourite bushcraft knives - the work he produced was both beautiful and extremely practical.  The quality of the leatherwork is first class and I am absolutely delighted. Himself evidently an outdoorsman,  what sets him apart is his understanding of the practical aspects of design as form follows function. The sheaths are magnificent and will outlast me.  Unlike me, they will only get better with age.  You won’t find better:  I cannot praise his work too highly. Yours aye, Stephen Dudley 28/02/2018

Traditional Hudson Bay Brass Tinder Box with Hand Forged Fire Steel (85-2010-BR)

For the record the “Hudsons Bay” tinderbox,  it’s a fab piece of kit! Well made with that authentic feel about it, with quality tinder inside, it’s good to go right out of the box! I tried this kit out immediately after the postie dropped it off, first with the magnifying glass around 09.30 and it worked a treat, even in mid January! Next with Flint & Steel, a bit longer this time, about 5 mins to get a good technique (actually forgot just how to do it!!!) and it was just perfect. On my Woodland Wayer Course two summers ago, it took me 2x30 min sessions to actually get an ember to a flame. Well pleased with the kit, a living piece of history - still good today as it ever was!

Hello Mark, Just a quick note to say I received my order (Hudson Bay) yesterday. Very nice. Tried it out, and had a glowing char, then a flaming jute nest in no time. 

Thanks for the generous amount of flint. Should last a lifetime. I only wish gun flints were priced as cheaply, comparatively over here. 

I am new to the whole Bushcraft way. Usually camp in forestry campsites with picnic tables and car access.  Once again, thanks. Am glad I came across one of your u tube videos.   Mitch McCrea.  Maple Ridge, B.C. Canada
