Step 2: Step 2.

Then you want to label the inside of the tin lid with what ever information about yourself as you like.
(optional). This is in case you are found unconscious and someone needs to get your details. For safety reasons. We have also added matches and a striker to the lid, to save space in the tin.
<p>Good Job!</p>
<p>Nicely organized</p>
<p>Very well dine kit, looks so professional I could swear you bought it !!! Nice Job.</p>
I like that you have so many matches. I think I'll add more to my survival kit. If you get a chance to look at mine lemme know what you think! :)
the contents of this is almost EXACTLY like what you would find in a Navy SEALs kit, pretty good!
the special forces use a flint bar with a saw striker, waterproof matches, and a butane lighter(Usually a Zippo) for as many redundant backups as possible, as well as slow burning candles. try getting &quot;elite forces survival guides&quot; from your local library (the books are small, but comprehensive) they show you how to put together a survival kit, how to tie knots, how to make weapons, how to forage, and all sorts of stuff. i used a camel tobacco tin i found on the road for my pocket size kit, the baked on enamel is good to protect against rust.<br><br>P.S:<br><br>if anyone knows where i can find a zippo brand butane lighter for really cheap, let me know please
I have two suggestions: Ditch the matches for a lighter, a bic will light like 600 fires compared to the 20 or so matches you have and is much easier to use, and pack in 20 to 100 dollars in the. It'd be a shame to survive the woods and find a town only to have no money for food, pone calls, and shelter. Otherwise this is a fairly comprehensive bare bones kit.
Good job. Your kit seems well stocked, and it's definitely better than mine. This really surprised me because I've been trying to get the contents right for about a year.
y know what, its the only one I've seen that's actually suited to urban(dangerous countries) AND wilderness survival clever use of the lid and electrical insulation tape xD<br />
I find Old Tobacco tins are perfect (the SAS survival guided recommends them)<br /> however they are hard to find in normal shops.<br /> I found that army surplus shops like B.D.R. sell them for about 2 pounds or about 4ish us dollars<br />
&nbsp;thanks everyone for the nice comments:)
great idea, though if i may, a small roll of duck tape could come in handy. grgeat 'ible though!
if you wrap a piece of paper around the tin, when it is closed, and tape the end, with regular tape, or even glue, then you should be able to slide that off, if you can, then <br /> you make sure that paper is wide/wider than the duct tape<br /> and you roll as much duct tape onto the paper as you want, then you can use that, the only problem i found is moisture/water, so, i put some releasable ZIPPER bags in my kit, and vaccum sealed the outside, or use another zipper bag, with with the zipper rubber banded to the edege, to prevent accidental opening.
best ive seen
i second that
I second-second that.
third? really good.
Cool kit : ) I see you have wrapped up the blades in insulation tape, is it? That'll be useful, specially with the ferreting hands of my family, searching through my tin! Thanks for the upload
You used a baccy-tin? Good idea, as it holds more than the usual (don't need to name it) tin. And I like the birthday candles! L
<strong>Thanks allot, if all the people that liked the instructable would please vote for it in the pocket sized competition, that would be much appreciated thank you!</strong><br/>
to be honest, i clicked on this instructable expecting to see a poorly equiped survival kit with inadequate supplies, half expecting to be able to rant about what you did wrong. i am pleasantly surprised. i've given this a go before but never had any items worth putting IN the tin. you seem to have all the right stuff for a night alone stuck in the bush without a pack. well done.
