Puukko/leuku sheath firesteel attachment

Want to know an easy way to attach a firesteel to most traditional Finnish puukko/leuku sheathes without adding a firesteel loop? Attach a piece of elastic cord to the firesteel handle, slip the rod under the leather strip and pull the elastic cord over the end of the rod. The firesteel can be quickly and easily transferred from one knife to another if desired. An alternative using traditional materials would be a leather strip strung through the firesteel handle and tied behind the rod on top.
