    What could you cut with a tack? What would you want to hang? And a weapon? Sounds really lethal...

    id add a bigger knife like this 1


    maby one or two taks but not that many lol

    I'd like to have a small amt of info about what each item will be good for, such as tacks?

     tacks would be for cutting, hanging, weapon, etc...

    hmmm, Ok.  can't picture it,  I guess I've never thought of needing a tack in the wilderness.  

    I cant picture it either, and tacks use up space, dont you have a knife for everything you just mentioned?

    can't imagine using the pins maybe to help hold things together, but not map tacks. anything I would need a "weapon" for would need more than a little prick from a pin. also, duct tape would be more useful than masking tape. it has more strength and will grip better in a wet/moist environment . lastly, you can wrap the outside of the tin with 550 cord which will keep the lid from opening and spilling contents when you least want it to and will give you a great deal of cordage since you can separate the strands of the 550 cord if you need to. you can secure the tin to a knife sheath .... such as a K-bar sheath keep on surviving....

    ha you don't want to spill the useless tacks every wear

    i can see you killing a bear or a bobcat with a tack
