Bringing history back to life with these unique pieces. A limited edition minature Tinderbox with a beautifully hand stitched, hand dyed soft Leather Pouch. Part of a new range of vintage pre-loved tinderboxes by Beaver Bushcraft. This minature Tinderbox, although small can be used (see video below) however it is fiddly due to its size. We do suggest that you need a modicum of Flint & Steel fire lighting experience. We don't know much about the history of this little silver box but it ceratinly makes a unique gift for someone special or for a Collector.
Once in a while we like to create something that is a little bit special. We have recently been collecting old Fire Steels, Tins and Tinderboxes for a new range of limited edition Fire Lighting Kits. Each tin will be different to each other as it will have its own unique patina. These tins will have an aged rustic patina, creating their own character. Perfect for re-enactors, bushcrafters, collectors or someone who wants something a little bit unique and maybe a possible heirloom for future generations. We at Beaver Bushcraft are becoming more and well known for our old school style of leather work. We like to think of our work as timeless and that it captures that old pioneering spirit.
This unique tinderbox has a traditional style Flint & Steel with its own handmsde leather pouch. Together they make a little bit of history come back to life. The Tinder Fire lighting kit has been carefully selected to recapture the era but also to be practical. Although this is a limited edition piece is still designed to be used. The more you use it, the more loved it will look. Suitable for all Bushcrafters, budding Pioneers, re-enactors, LARPs enthusiasts, Cosplayers & anyone who loves making fire the traditional way.

Made From High Quality 1.5mm Leather (+/-)
Handmade in the UK
Rustic Aged Character
Measures Approx: 85 mm X 60mm (When Folded)
Folds Neatly And Securely
This soft leather Pouch has been designed specifically for this beautiful minature Vintage Tin and has deliberately been made to capture that feeling of a bygone age. The Cross Stitching detail has been hand stitched using a fine artfical sinew. The pouch has been hand dyed in a dark walnut brown tone & then the leather has been softened, which not only gives a lovely patina but also makes it softer and more malleable to touch. One side has been softly moulded to house the minature silver box and the other side has been left to allow for extra tinder. It neatly folds up and is secured by a matching hand dyed leather thong which wraps round and secures the pouch. Can be easily slipped into a trouser or jacket pocket.
Please note that this particular pewterl box is a vintage piece and has an aged patina etc. It is still in perefct working condition. Any patina, markings, age spots etc can be seen clearly in the photos. The photos have not been retouched in anyway. Sold as seen.
