The “Ultimate” Compact – Leather Survival Kit
(30+ piece Kit with leather case)
Ok so there are almost one million ways to make a survival kit ranging from the DIY Altoid tin kit to the most extreme bug out bags and all things in between. I have been working hard on making one right in the middle to cover essentially the major basics – Fire, Shelter, Water, Food, First Aid – all in the quick pinch survival scenario. I see this kit in your daily commuter bag, purse, glove box and anywhere else you would keep an EDC (Every Day Carry) kit.
In a snapshot overview: The tin is used for all the usual, char cloth, etc but in combination with the Fuel Gel makes for a great fuel gel stove that burns hot, clean and just like a Sterno (so boiling water in a pinch even for the novice is a snap). * Tip: place a little bit of the cotton barely into the fuel gel and with one solid strike of the ferrocerium rod ~ WHAMO……you have FIRE!!!!!! *

There are plenty of ways to start fire, secure food (from fishing to making snares). The pocket key ring saw is awesome! All of the rest of the gear is essential and multi purpose. There are literally over one hundred scenarios within this kit. The last piece that I wanted to insure is that this kit not cost the moon (like most of the kits out there for purchase). In establishing this price I do not think you could DIY this kit for less.
But wait……there’s more!!!! Survival doesn’t always have “look” tactical. The leather double tin pouch (for this oversized tin is beautiful and looks even better the more it’s used!) Thanks to my friend Casey Samson at Samson Leather this leather case is so nice and who doesn’t love leather!!! Getting the ladies to carry this in the purse or stashed in the car will not be a problem!!!

Compact Leather Survival Kit – Excellent Product and Quality
Survival Kit was as described. Wide variety of practical survival goods in a compact and stylish leather case (very nice!). I will be ordering another to keep in both glove compartments of our family vehicles; where they will remain until I need to throw in my hunting bag or backcountry backpack. Cheers!

This was a gift for my husband. He is so impressed with the craftsmanship of this piece. The tin of survival gear is a nice touch. I recommend this for the leather pouch alone; it is well worth the money. Also, the personal note attached was appreciated.

Well thought out.
Very nice compact kit to keep in a vehicle or pack. I did remove some items and replace with items I’m comfortable with and most people will customize to their own requirements. One change that will benefit everyone will to replace the leather chord with 550 chord. Overall very pleased with product and shipping was prompt.

TEK Survival Knife
Superb craftsmanship and quality. I also purchased the Neck Knife and a Ferrocerium Rod (1/2″ x 6″ Heavy Duty) and combined them to make an excellent outdoor rig. A picture of it can be seen in the slides for the Neck Knife although my handles are different.
