The way I assembly this little piece of equipment is simply to have a backup for my main survival /camping kit, with some items that I consider essential/complementary. It could act as an emergency kit on its own, in fact.
Here´s the list of the contents. From left to right top to bottom:
First aid items:
2 large band aids
1 pack of “sulfatiazol” powder. It applies to the wound and act as a disinfectant and fast wound closure
2 paracetamol pills

Fishing / Fire items
1 little fishing line roll (7 meters)
1 firesteel bar
6 assorted size fishing hooks
2 fishing weights
1 fatwood stick
1 meter paracord line
1 leather pouch/theraband rubberbands for improvise in-situ a powerful slingshot. After the blade, I consider this is an excellent option for a survival low tech weapon
1 high carbon blade w/ paracord handle
I managed to make a rubber/duct tape (mossy oak camo) sheath in the back of the Altoid tin, it is sturdy and light enough. That little blade was made by a local blacksmith friend of mine. Easy to draw and although it stands out from the tin container it´s not annoying to carry, as it could seem.
2 smoked beef jerky sticks
1 wringley´s bubblegum
1 rubberband (for pack the slingshot rubbers)
1 Origami tinfoil cup (holds easily 500 ml.)
As you can see, in the rest of the photos, this fits not only in a front shirt pocket, but also in a side/arm pocket, Well I think this is it, good luck to all!!!
