Congrats on the Badge. Small kit but very well appointed. I think its probably better to have a kit you'd carry rather than a heft one you might leave at home .
Well deserved badge and congrats on that!The snuffer tube and fuse idea is brilliant, I'd learn something new today and thanks to this!
I recently added so,e mini fat wood sticks to my fire kit.I’ve heard a lot about fat wood being a good fire starting tinder. But being in a more urban environment, it isn’t like I can just go cut a piece anytime I want and I also wasn’t that interested in carrying large chunks of wood in my small kit. I discovered where I could get some rather small finger size pieces of fatwood to try. To my surprise it actually works better than I was expecting. I used a SAK to just shave off a some feathers and threw them in my little twig stove with so,e twigs. By the time the feathers were done burning, all the other twigs were nicely burning. One finger size fatwood stick started 3 small fires. I’m still going to use my baddest bees fuze (or hemp wick) to light the fatwood, rather than lighting the fatwood directly from a ferro rod, The fuses light easier from a spark and the snuffer metal piece gives you something to hold while lighting multiple places. But a few small fatwood sticks will also join my fire kit.
Great addition The kit the missus got me came with a bundle of fatwood pieces of similar length to those, probably fat enough to make 4ish of them. I split one down to your kind of size to reasonably carry it in the kit. Though splitting it on a concrete slab was not the brightest idea and that knife's tip doesn't look at me the same anymore
