Yup! My husband and I picked up two or three of these for Christmas years ago when Restoration Hardware was still available as a brick and mortar store where we live. Mine has a nice patina of rust on the sides, from hanging on my hair accessories rack next to the bathroom sink. They look nice and weathered and I didn't even have to do anything to achieve it. LOL.

However, be warned. These babies will rust on you with benign neglect.

That's pretty cool. I haven't purchased any firefly stuff (other t hen patches) in a wile, so I might have to pick up a pair of these. :)

Yup, I just ordered a pair to go with my Rance Burgess laser pistol plus the really cool case to keep it in.

This is the only other Firefly prop I bought this year besides

I used to wear ones like these in the 80's when I used to use a cutting torch. Of course, I never had to worry about swallowing a bug. :shock:

I was a little strapped for cash during the holidays, so I put off picking up a set of these, and it seems I missed out. I have done some searching but haven't been able to find another site selling them. If any of you should see some for sale, during your daily travels around the net, please let me know. (I'm just looking for one set, for my own collection.)
