Our handmade leather Hudson Bay Tinderbox ‘Possibles’ Pouches are designed to accommodate, any one of our full range of Hudson Bay Tinderboxes, with the base of the pouch being curved to the same dimensions as the Hudson Bay Tinderbox itself. It is also well suited to be used with our 1700 ‘Trappers’ Tinderbox and our 1790 ‘ English’ Tinderbox. The originally design of pouch was commissioned, by one of our clients, to be used with his own Hudson Bay Tinderbox and since then many of our other customers have shown an interest and asked us to make one for them as well.

Each of these high quality Hudson Bay Tinderbox ‘Possibles’ Pouches is carefully made from best quality vegetable tanned 3.5mm (+/-) thick, soft, supple leather. The leather used in these pouch will protect a Hudson Bay Tinderbox from scratching and other damage that so easily befalls valuable items of this nature, allowing it to be safely secured to a belt. A strong full-belt-loop attached to the rear of the pouch so that it can be fitted to any belt that is up to 1-3/4 Inches wide. The approximate dimensions of each Pouch 100mm (4 inches) wide by 80mm (3 inches) across by 35mm (1-1/4 inch) deep, and weighs just under 130 grams.
Whilst the Hudson Bay Tinderbox ‘Possibles’ Pouch was originally designed to house a Hudson Bay Tinderbox, the Pouch itself is perfect for just about anyone – Bushcraft & Survival Enthusiasts, Campers and Hikers etc - who wants a small Handmade ‘Possibles’ Pouch that can be used with, or without, a Hudson Bay Tinderbox. It is also ideal for Mobile Phones, Keys and other small objects that would normally be carried in a pocket.
Cross Stitching in our 3-strand braided waxed artificial sinew (real sinew would be prohibitively expensive to make and use), or our extra heavy weight, 1.7mm diameter, brown, braded Tiger thread, gives each hand ‘Cross’ stitched Pouch a traditional rustic look that compliments the veg tanned leather that the pouches are made from.
What are Hudson Bay Tinderboxes?
Hudson Bay Tinderboxes are beautifully crafted traditional tinderboxes that were used by our forebears during the 18th and 19th as a trades good in the wilderness territories of North America and Canada. Commissioned by the famous Hudson Bay Company during this time these fantastic little tinderboxes were a much-prized item that could be used, in deft hands, to light fire just about anywhere, in mere seconds.
