Hand Crafted Osage Orange handles for ferro rods and strikers

Not only are these fantastic HSS Strikers suburb for striking ferrocerium rods but can easily be used for processing tinder, creating Maya dust from fatwood and many other outdoor tasks. Multi use, light weight, strong, reliable and effective with these necessary attributes the HSS Striker remains one of my favorite tools while in the outdoors. I have one that stays in a small pouch on the side of my pack and goes with me everywhere. I have continued to rely on these for years and the main reason is for there simplicity of use. It takes no effort to utilize this effective tool.

Years ago I had always leaned toward the back of my modified Mora knife that I had ground down with a file to form a sharp ninety degree edge that would be efficient in striking my ferro rod. This became a quick thing of the past when I discovered the HSS Striker and how effective the were. I could now easily start a fire in nearly any weather condition without risking damage to my knife or excessive wear on my ferro rod.



Not only are these beautifully made with Osage Orange wood but they are extremely durable. Osage Orange is a very hard wood with minimal shrinkage. But as all wood shrinks when it dries so does this useful resource but we take careful measures to seal the ends of our products so they will not crack. We harvest all of our resources with care including Osage Orange. This resource is very carefully picked as it can not be made into useful handles when freshly cut and green. Instead it must be either dried for six to eight months or cut while dead standing. If harvested at the perfect time the wood is able to be used as is but on the other hand if harvested to late the wood is near decay and will have significant cracking rendering it useless for crafting.
