why this product

When heavy kerosene lanterns or battery-operated flashlights and headlamps fail backpackers and trekkers, these lanterns are a dependable option out on the trail. They are small enough to fit in a backpack but bright enough to light the way. 

use & care

There are several recipes to polish copper, but the best and simplest is equal parts ketchup and salt. This recipe makes smudged copper shiny. Read more on Kaufmann Mercantile’s reference page.

For brass, mix equal parts of salt and flour with enough white vinegar to make a paste. Some folks use lacquer to protect the brass, but polishing always suffices.

production & design

The company that created these Copper or Brass Compact Tea Light Lanterns proudly offers a full line of American-made muzzleloading supplies, including pipes, nose-caps, hardware and parts, gun hangers and wrenches. With a love of history and building guns, founder Tedd D. Cash set out to create quality hardware to service his guns in 1968. Cash’s interest in guns began back in the 1950's when he acquired an old .30 caliber half stock rifle. After serving in the military, he built a Kentucky pistol from a Dixie Gun Works kit. He continued to refine his practice, building a business that stands some forty years later.

Scott Pobjoy took over the company in 2005 after training under Cash’s watchful eye for over twenty years. He began his apprenticeship with Cash as a spirited high school student in 1981. Today, his wife and two children contribute to the family business and you can find the whole family at trade shows across the country.
