    Interesting kit. What's in the straw?

    Also, razor blades are weak and only good for specific purposes. Consider replacing low priority items (like the large bobber) with a reliable knife.

    I recently uploaded an Altoids kit if you'd like to see how I did it.

    the straw is a firestartwer that is stuffed with drier lint, and i replaced the bobber with a whistle with built in flashlight and i always carry a good knife on me, the razor is just in case of an extreme emergency, like if i lose my knife. thanks for commenting and the suggestions!
