Belt Pouch & Fire Starting Kit

Here are a few photos of a small belt pouch and fire starting kit that I put together and will donated to the Schoenbrunn Village Trade Fair, held in October. It is complete with a flint & steel, the steel fits in a leather case, burning glass also in a leather case. The small tin holds char and tinder and flint also in the pouch is a small amount of tow. Everything to start a fire. "The steel was made and donated by Ben Hoffman of Hoffman Reproduction"
