The arbija is an outer integral part of flint pistols and rifles. It is most often attached to the bottom of the main barrel of a weapon. As a tool, it is a straight steel pipe that ends in a handle at the top. The steel pipe is smooth, and in the upper part it ends in a stylised brass part with vertical rises. The brass handle at the top is defined by a smooth ball formation around which there is a richly decorated brass ring. The ring has an applied function and is used for hooking. The arabija is a tool used to feed gunpowder into flint weapons.
