Always great to see our our German Silver Hudson Bay Tinderboxes are coming along with their new owners. The photo on the left is by deathoftheparty on Instagram & shows what a great patina is now has and plus how great the Hudson Bay Belt Pouch looks too. The other pic is by Andy from birch_bushcraft and again shows how great these kits look aftertime.

Hello, i just wanted to say that i recieved the kit today and thank you for it! It's a really cool little flint and steel kit and thank you for the extra amadue and flints that you sent. I was working on getting it to spark ( I'm new to the flint and steel ) My friend anxiously watched me to no avail and so she said let me see it, she wanted to see if she could get it to spark and she did! So im going to practice. I want to go back to your website and watch that video on it that shows you using it. The kit is really awesome and compact and can fit in a small pants or shirt pocket! I'm going to put the brimstone matches and small candles in a little bits and bobs necessities tin im making up! Thanks again! You guys are awesome and your site is full of cool bushcraft items. I'm going to recommend you to all the people who i know like camping and bushcraft. Thanks again for taking time to respond to me and the great customer service. I hope to order more in the future. Keep in touch. Angie Collins 18/04/2020

Hudson Bay Tinderboxes 

We love seeing our Hudson Bay Tinderboxes in use. These pics were from Renzo Cimone Outdoors who runs a Bushcraft School in Italy. We met Renzo and his team at last year's Bushcraft Show and its so nice to see that he uses his Hudson Bay Tinderbox out in the wilds.

 Vintage & Pre-Loved 

Hello, Many thanks for the vintage snuff box tobacco tinderbox which safely arrived a couple of days ago.  I’m delighted with this item, which is half the size of the previous flint and steel kit which I purchased from you. It is the perfect size for my every day carry, and thanks for the extra flint and tinder! 

Kind regards,Gordon 22/11/19

Hudson Bay Tinderbox

Dear Mark, Dear Beaver Bushcraft team, After a week abroad, I finally had the pleasure of picking up my Tinder Box at the post office.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and congratulate you on your professionalism. It was the best online shopping experience I have ever had. This is largely due to your short emails informing me of the development of my order.  Now I'm going to hurry out and enjoy the fresh air and my new tools. Again, thank you for everything. Warm greetings from Switzerland ! Emmanuel 28/09/2019

Mini Tinderbox Hand Stitched Leather Pendant

Hi Mark, Thank you on multiple accounts. 1st... quick delivery brilliant .2nd the free extra tinder & flints unexpected and well appreciated.

3rd wow I just love the craftsmanship in the leather pendants, this has gone straight to the top of my favourite tinder pouches and i know it will be coming on many an adventure with me (fell walks/camping). I have so far found it surprisingly easy to use 4 out of 4 attempts successful so far. Although I can appreciate people with shovel sized hands might struggle at first but with a bit of practice would become a well-loved and cherished bit of kit.   The craftsmanship that’s gone into making this product will last a life time easily and I can admire & appreciate it's quality.  Regards, Scott. 18/11/2018

This photo was taken by Clive Smith showing his Beaver Bushcraft Copper Hudson Bay Tinderbox, tinders and one of our handmade leather Pioneering Pouches made in natural russet. Over time this kit will take on a great patina and have its own charactor.
