SOLD Tinder Pistol Walking Stick


SOLD  Tinder Pistol Walking Stick

A very rare cane or walking stick with a working tinder pistol for a handle. It is in excellent working order.

Tinder pistols were used to make flame. As in contemporary firearms, when triggered a piece of flint sprang against steel to create a spark which ignited a charge of gunpowder. This in turn set fire to a piece of tinder. Tinder pistols were expensive and were owned only by a small and wealthy minority of households. They were often converted by a gunsmith from ordinary pistols.
