A nicely made replica of a popular trade item. This oval tobacco box is modeled after an original sold by the famous Hudson's Bay Company, during the fur trade era.
The lid fits and seals tightly. A burning glass lens is fitted to the cover. Notice that our flint and steel fire striker will fit within this box. Our flint and steel strike-a-light are sold separately, and this box is a great place to keep your tinder, char-cloth, and tinder-cord dry, until time for fire making. Dampness is a common problem at the Rendezvous. This nicely made tobacco box is air tight.
Our 3'' wide by 4-1/2'' long tinder box has a bright finish but can be blued or browned if desired.
