OR, how a gunpowder dispenser, for laying a line of black powder in a trail along paper to make Quickmatch fuse, probably Chinese idea/origin.

YT - it doesn't really 'dispense' anything and it is a very simple tool that has one function. It is Asian in origin, but not Chinese.

The residue looks like charcoal ash or burnt wood ash IMO. BTW, Featherblu, are you actually using this "tool" or does is it used for conversation starters like on this site--:)

or is it for Line marking?

you pull a string through the charcoal, pull the string tight between 2 points and close to a surface, then you "Twang" the string and the charcoal comes off leaving a line.


edit: nevermind I think that`s what Expat meant before me.

He said the black is not ash in a earlier post.
