Fire-steel (length 4 1/3 ins) combined with ember-tongs; two striking-faces; spring of very elaborate construction. [NB: one of thirty-three specimens (nos. 424-456), all Spanish, but combined with some other article or articles of frequent personal use (generally with ember-tongs, but often with knife-blade, cork-screw, pipe-prick, screw-driver, hammer, or other). Many possess considerable artistic merit]
