I've been looking around at some of the firesteels (Swedish Firesteel, Blast Match, Metal Match, etc.) and even though I've already got a few of these I thought I'd have a go at making a couple of my own.
I bought some ferrocerium rods from an importer in Queensland and turned up a couple of handles on the bench grinder - wood for one and micarta for the other. I think they came out rather well considering it only took about 5 minutes to make each one, with the exception of the time it took for the Araldite to dry.
