Fire Steel - Re-Handled with Acrylic Fire Effect

An old 'Light My Fire' fire steel, re-handled with an acrylic fire effect block and brighter orange paracord. The shaping of the acrylic was achieved easily with a cheap 3inch blade. No other tools were required other than the first chop with a junior hacksaw, and some fine sand paper to finish off.
The material is lovely to work with, with no grains to worry about, unlike wood which can sometimes be tricky in certain directions of carving.
