Part One of needed items to get your flintlock firing and cleaned at the end of the day.

Traditions/CVA Flintlock shooters, I highly suggest the 1/2"x5/8" French Amber flints, wrapped in leather!

You forgot a screwdriver-like tool to loosen/tighten the jaws around your flint unless you plan on using the brass scraper as a screwdriver.

I keep a copper wire tied to my trigger guard to place in the touch hole while I load. It acts as a vent pick and keeps your powder from being condensed too much when loading the PRB.

Brush for the pan, and a touch hole pick is usually bigger that the nipple pick you show. Maybe a little hammer for keeping the flint sharp. Not really needed, but some guys like them. You can use your knife.

Not done yet boys! Ran out of bandwidth so loading pictures is a big no no right now unless you want to wait 20 minutes for one to load.

someone needs to take a good studying look at the Flinters Tool Kit. (Brush, Hammer, Pins and barrel pin pushers and flat screw driver all on a ring. The ring is big enough for personal like items for the individual shooter to add to. I have a special pocket in my bag for my tools.
