TBS Leather DC4 and Firesteel Kit
This attachment was originally designed for use on our own TBS Range of sheaths but we specifically requested that it have it's own additional belt loop so that it could be used as a stand alone product.
All of our range of knife or leather products are manufactured from high quality European materials by a top, well known, European manufacturer in small batches; they are NOT churned out in their thousands in a factory in the Far East. This allows us to have ultimate control over quality and materials and we are extremely happy with the results.
The Sharpening Stone
The newly-developed DC4 whetstone consists of a fine diamond stone (25 micron) and a very special ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphires. The advantage of these materials, although they get worn, will still keep their flat shape this is important when you sharpen your knife. And, since these materials are the hardest we know of, they will sharpen any steel, even these extremely hard powder steels.
The newly-developed CC4 whetstone consists of a super fine ceramic stone (white side) (0,1 micron) and a ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphires (dark grey) (1 micron). You don’t need any lubrication for these stones but now and then you should consider cleaning them with water and liquid soap.
The firesteel in this model is our own TBS ferrocium rod Army sized Firesteel (9.4mm thick) that gives a shower of sparks at over 3000c (5400f). It makes firelighting SO much easier and will give you thousands of strikes. It also comes with its own, very useful striker which has a useful roamer measuring scale and a bottle opener. The striker with this steel gives a MUCH better shower of white hot sparks than the back of your knife.
Came across this store and this specific product through YouTube and I’m super impressed by the quality, shipping speed.
The product is compact and well made and just the right size for any trip into the woods. I will definitely order this product and from this store In general again.
