    The firesteels will look like this after I knot work them with some gutted paracord.

    I also add a brass safety pin to each of the can openers, because they can also come in handy, and they keep the can opener blade from opening all the way and poking holes in one's pockets and/or leg. :eek: ;)

    That's cool, will the ferro's slide out or do you have to unwrap them?

    I tie them to be worn as a pendant, zipper pull on a bag, or fob on a keyring for 'Be Prepared' or 'Emergency' use, so I melt and crimp the end, which can be cut open and then the firesteel pushed down and out from the top for use.

    If you tie them like I do, you may be able to tuck them back in and re-crimp the end again a time or two, but this specific design with such a small firesteel (1/8" x 2") wasn't meant for repeated in/out of the paracord sheath like you would with a larger firesteel mounted in kydex/leather/PVC on a fixed blade knife sheath.

    I've gotten to where I give each firesteel a coat of clear nail polish to prevent any corrosion if repeatedly exposed to rain/sweat, but the current paracord firesteel I have on my keyring is about five years old and uncoated without any issues, so I don't know if that really makes a difference. ;)

    Ordered a couple of these to "train" with. Just a generic photo, but I did get some flags to put on the darts and handles. It'll be fun to bruise myself up a bit getting used to swinging them around.

    Handful of items coming in from Going Gear:
    1- A dangler
    2- A plastic 2xCR123 case
    3- SureFire E-series press-fit red lens cover
    4- CRKT M16-03Z
    5- A digital camo bandana

    Especially looking forward to #4 as it was the last one in stock. Not sure, but it seems to be one of the harder M16 variants to find out there.
