    Just made a new pouch for my medieval tinder kit; just a simple hand stitched (w. waxed linen thread) vegetable tanned leather drawstring pouch. Probably the most common pouch of the middle ages.

    The firesteel is made by www.ildsmeden.dk

    Now I just need to find some tinder fungus or make some charcloth.

    Funnily enough, I was thinking about making some pouches like that the other day. I reckon you could get the leather from furniture companies which would be nice and soft and already tanned ready to go.

    Anyway, I really like that Jakob.

    Thanks gentlemen.

    Simple pouches like these are among the most common leather items found at medieval excavations. It is not hard to imagine that they have been used for a vast array of purposes.

    I usually oil my steel, when putting it away for longer periods of time.

    Simple is always the best. Keep thinking about doing some of these in different sizes but always seem to end up with more dry bags

    Got to get my backside in gear really but each time I try to do something for me the kids always get their requests in.
