Way too many people make steel firestrikers, prices are very low. I make them now and then, too. They sell well, but aren't much of a novelty item. I actualy made one that included a multi-purpose spike on one end. Some guy over at the AK Files forum bought it quickly, but I never got any more demand for those, so I moved on.

Not really a tool, just thought I'll show my today's product - wooden snow goggles, for the French&Indian War reenactment.

I saw the most recent episode from that show Dual Survival on Discovery channel.   One of the guys had a similar pair of googles.   He had blackend the inside to cut down on the glare.   I have often wondered if a pair of these would be overkill for my BOB.   The other day I was outside cleaning the snow off the drive, came in with a headache from how bright it was.

Well you can always get yellow-tinted ski goggles for that...
But if you wanted this wooden classic, let me know, I'm just carving another for a guy who saw the pics.

I've loaded the dolabra I showed here on ebay, in case someone was interested:

I've almost forgot about this thread. Well, guess the "pocket dolabra" I made was made well, because the guy who bought it never complained. But it took half a year before someone noticed it (not even sure on which site, I posted it at several places) and asked if I still had it and if not, whether I can make another. So, looks like the product was made well, but didn't quite catch customers. I've also made a lovely little double bit hatchet later, also with a round eye for easy shaft making. Still have it. But sure, made and sold 15 plain boring tomahawks meanwhile. Guess I'm either not good at designing new survival tools, or my marketing skills suck.
