    Saw Beavis had the Glow version.

    had some Ideas for you -

    Add Tritium Vials. They are inexpensive and easy enough to work with. Proper adhesive is the 'Norland Optical Adhesive #61'- Use a UV Light to Optically cure it.

    Titanium versions <- EDIT - So there is a titanium line I found out.

    Firesteal version

    Spork version.

    Just some ideas for you.

    I just order some Tritium vials. We will see what I can come up with. Also like the Firesteal idea, might be a cool way to combine all of these. Spork is a bit more difficult, getting the curvature of the bowl will require a die or hammering.

    Thanks for the ideas. Keep them coming!

    Ti spork was my idea, similar to this. Mainly for camping use, I have this spork pictured and it's great. I believe you'd need a die to create the bowl, but IMO this would be a cool addition. Camping and beer go hand in hand, so it makes total sense to me, though I'm not paying to produce them. :thumbsup:

    Incorrect. Carbon works better. Stainless still throws. The big factor in throwing sparks from a firesteel is edge angle, it should be 90 degrees with sharp edges.

    Here's a stupid video I found quickly.

    Some pics I liked. I have a horrible habbit of not documenting my own work.

    I used to make MOD's for Ecigs, the 18650 battery holders with a mechanical switch on the bottom. Also used to modify Laser 'Hosts' for people, Light Hosts too. Occasionally I would hand craft pieces of metal into keychains. Modified 20 watches with tritium vials. Changed out TRIT sights on firearms for different colors, or added them for that matter.

    I like to do the work and get things done. In being proficient at things, I always forget to document and take pictures of the work I complete/

    I like the spork idea. Would one end have an opener similar in shape to the key buddy?
