I had been wondering what to write about, but then my friend Håkan made me this as a gift
It is a traditional snuff or tinder container,
made from Birch bur, thin strips of Pine and sewed with Birch root and he has set Reindeer horn into the top.
Inside he had put a Bic lighter as a joke and I will explain why…
I have started selling Natural Lore Fire Sets here in Lapland and I am using old PLASTIC snuff containers (people here throw thousands away every year and I thought I would recycle some) but Håkan thinks I should make something like the container he has made to contain the fire sets.
The fire set includes a specially made fire steel, with a piece of flint, some True Tinder Fungus
and some Hemp string in the top compartment
I am going to make a container like Håkan’s (without Reindeer horn in the top) to see how long it takes me to make one. Maybe I can use them as a more expensive version of the Natural Lore Fire Set……we shall see.
