It fits on a key chain.

A hand held tool or device, see if you can guess what it is.

I like RG's answer. It could be used to cut tender shavings from bare wood but a knife would do that. Looks like part of the ferrocium rod sticking in the right side of the picture.

Interesting striker idea. ;) Hit three sides at once rather than a single blade..

Originally designed by "Thor" the "Firemaster" You are the great, great grandson of "Thor-B-Finnigan"

You have the Masters DNA...............geewhiz!!!! you sure do make the best looking stuff..................stuff that most of us only dream of :mrgreen:

That is one clever design. :D I've been known to say the means of fire starting should be on your person 24/7. I'll trade a few hand made stoves for that little life saver :D

Okay..didn't get it right?.. :o Now the fun begins.. :twisted:

It's for trimming nose and ear hairs on the trail?

It's a vasectomy kit for squirrels?

It's a high pitched whistle for calling the search chihuahuas when you hit a deep pocket snowshoeing on Rainier?

Did I get it right yet?....No?...Hmmm...

It's an emergency cat hole shovel for people on extreme diets?

It's for digging out those really big,long cedar splinters.. :o !

It's a really tiny water filter/straw for drinking out of tarns..You think it's small,you oughta see the filter that fits inside! :o ..Of course you'll turn your head inside-out try to suck water through the thing.

It's for bear control..you stab him in the nose with it...

it's for mano a mano dueling with horny mountain goats(you had to have been there... :roll: )

:lol:
