    Wow I hope you are okay :) I would add steri-strips (I'm not sure if they are still sold). They close up wounds like you have and would definitely fit in the box.

    Knife? Rope? You might need to add some other stuff.

    I've also added a small amount of brass snare wire for snares and for fixing stuff.
