Pocket Survival Kit





Introduction: 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

 Here is some things you will need:
-Iodine pills
-Cotton tinder
-Waterproof/Windproof matches
-Razor Blade
-Liquid filled compass
-Wax Candle
-Hemp twine
-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..

Step 2: Always Carry It With You

 Don't forget always carry your survival kit when you are exploring the outdoors 
its small enough to fit in your pocket or even in your day sack.
remember there's no excuse to leave it behind make sure it's always with you
one day it could save your life!

Step 3: Finished

 Your'e done make sure everything works and don't leave it behind.
A thing that I recommend you should do is wrap some tape around the tin like shown below which ensures that the tin is waterproof just in case.

    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!

    This is adequate but important components are left out

    WTF are you talkin about?????

    Now if only i had a civil war era tin for this, in case i go with my friend with his reenactment troop.
