View Full Version : Vacation in an Altoids tin

Here’s some stuff I came up with to go with my fire striker knives in a survival kit. The tweezers are work hardened mild steel, and the rest are spring tempered music wire.

Top to bottom,
Tweezers, poker, gig, spear and hooks.

Maybe you could make a needle, add some thread, and a couple buttons. I'm really liking the gig and the spear.

Tracy, I used a 2 pound hammer for most of it, but about a one pound jewelers planishing hammer would also be fine.

It ain't a sword but,... here’s the whole shebang. :)




The striker knife is 1095 and the edge guard is mild steel.

Also in the tin (same size as an Altoids tin):
Watercolor paper liner.
Hard Arkansas flint flake.
Steel wool.
Cotton cord.

My birthday is coming up in Feb. And my hunting bag is never heavy enough. Great kit.
