    Things To Do With A Salad Fork/Spoon Set

    .





    I bought this vintage hollowware salad fork/spoon set on fleabay & a couple of FFFg flintlock priming valves from TOTW







    I then cut the wooden fork/spoon off from their hollow handles.






    I made a small wooden plug to fit inside the open end of the handle(s), drilled it for the priming valve, then epoxied it in place.





    And, VIOLA ! ! - A handy/compact flintlock pan priming tool !

    Pretty fancy.

    They'll look good in one of those velvet lined wooden boxes with a pair of dueling pistols.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.


    Be careful about picking a fight with old people.
    In the 2-3 seconds it takes them to figure out they can't win it, a lot of them will probably just kill you.

    Make rings from the handles, a fishing spoon from the spoon head, & a hole spacer for leather working from the fork head. No waste!

    What's the base metal that those handles are made from?
    From what I've found some are plated while others are sterling silver. --->>> https://www.precious-metal-refining....ver-holloware/

    .

    Thanks for the kind sentiments, folks !

    The holloware handles are marked "sterling" in a band around the open end.

    Well great... Now my holloware fork and spoon collecting will become more difficult now that you pesky black powder folks will start a demand for them.

    Those are really sharp looking Pete. Are you going to find a sterling gravy boat to make a powder flask for the main charge next?
