Ideas for a firesteel chuck/handle?

Recommended Posts

I have some 3/8"x6" and 1/2"x6"/12" firesteels. I'd like to make (no welding equipment) or find a handle that can solidly hold them. People usually epoxy them into wood handles but I want to be able to remove/replace/flip them around in the "chuck".


I use one of these lumber crayon holders at work (http://www.forestry-suppliers.com/Images/Original/1237_71135_u1.jpg, ) and that's where I got the idea, but I cannot find one in metal. The lumber crayon holder wont hold up to the downward violent pressure, I tried.


Anything off the shelf you can think of? In the case of the 1/2"x12" the handle would need to be hollow so that I can let as much out as I need and the rest can protrude through the base of the handle on the other end for all I care.
