Picture of Pocket Survival Kit
 Here is my idea of the perfect survival companion which may one day
come to use for an emergency situation...

Step 1: Gathering Your Supplies

Picture of Gathering Your Supplies
 Here is some things you will need:
-Iodine pills
-Cotton tinder
-Waterproof/Windproof matches
-Razor Blade
-Bandages
-Liquid filled compass
-Wax Candle
-Hemp twine
-Firesteel
-Sewing Kit (with leather stitching needle and thread)
-Braided wire saw
-Fishing kit (with 10lb ice fishing line)
-Snare wire
-Ziploc bag

Once you have bought all the supplies neatly stack all the things in the tin
and close the lid, make sure the tin is sealed airtight and everything is 
replaced every so often to ensure that everything keeps to its premium..

um will a compass work if it has a bubble in it
That's not a razor blade- that's a snap-off utility blade!

Pocket Survival Kits could be an Olympic event! Contents are variable as to locale and personal preference. Maybe this should be a separate category in survival, with subdivisions for: Altoids (macro to mini), and up to big stuff for big places. The periodical "The Backwoodsman" (available mostly where "Make" is sold) is a great resource. " It's sort of "Make" without electronics. Check it out.

Yes!! my dad has tons of those backswoodsman magazine's I think read them more than him lol. Contents are definately a preference, it also depends on your abilities aswell Thanks for the comment!

for drinking u just take a small, flat flask which can go into another pocket. (yeah it doesn't really matter about the shape but it's handy if it is flat)

Good job. You covered all the basics, like fire, drinkable water, food. I might include a clean can as storage, and it can also be used to boil water to make it drinkable. Do not underestimate your tin cans, people.

As for the wire saw: drop it. I have yet to find one that cuts well, or doesn't break after using it twice. Instead, break smaller tree limbs by hand, or drag larger ones into your fire. When the limb burns, move more of the limb into the fire.

Were would the can go? Ive used the saw before, I put it in my surival kit. I found that if you now how to use a saw properly it won't break. I have bought the 1 strand wire saws before and they dont work but the braided ones prove to be very hardy. Maybe you bought the wrong one?

I love the black tape for the waterprooofing. Maybe gorilla tape couple of time around and usefull!
rownhunt (author)  gwestlun5 years ago
Good idea I do have some gorilla tape laying around!

Nice Job!!!! Not much else to add to that, other than maybe some painkillers to keep you from slipping into shock from injury.

I would just be careful with the braided wire saw's, the cheap ones tend to break ridiculously easy.
