Pre Loved Miniature Tinderbox with Hand Stitched Leather Pouch
A limited edition Miniature 'Snuff' Tinderbox with a beautifully hand crafted, simple Leather Pouch. Part of our range of vintage pre-loved tinderboxes by Beaver Bushcraft.
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 special Limied Edition set includes a traditional shaped Fire Steel, a mini fire lighting kit and one of our specaily hand stitched, hand dyed Pouches made from soft yet durable leather. The pouch has been hand cross stitched using a strong tiger thread to give a nice rustic but simple look. The handmade leather thong fastening has a cute knot detailing. Together these two make a little bit of history come back to life. The Tinder 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.

The traditional Fire steel has been beautifully crafted by Beaver Bushcraft and made in the UK. Our own brand of Fire Steels are easy to use and produce a high quality spark when used with a piece of spark Flint. This kit contains all the items listed. The pouch has just enough room so that you can add your own tinders to it. The mini Fire steel is approx 50mm long and is loosely based on a traditional Viking Fire Steel that was used at around the 9th Century AD. Due to the small size we do suggest that you do need quite a bit of experience at using a Flint & Steel for traditional fire lighting. Small sized fire steels can be a bt fidly to use if you are not used to this method.

Hand Cross Stitched
Handmade Wrap Round Leather Thong
Colour: Dark Saddle Tan
Measures Approx (When Closed): 55mm x 67mm x 15mm
Softly Moulded to fit this particular Tin

One side of the pouch is for the actual Tin and the other side is for your spare Tinder. We do suggest that when storing the small shards of flint in the pouch, that due to their super shapr edges, you carefully wrap the Amdou round the Flint. This will help stop any sharp edges from cutting your fingers when pulling the flint out or rpevent the flint from cutting the leather.
