Containing fire.
Traditionally, this box was filled with fire stone, fire steel and plant tinder. As this is called "hazardous material", we are only allowed to sell this model without content. Therefore, this box only becomes a tinder box when appropriately filled. However, certainly the tinder box can be filled with non-pyrotechnic items.

From shotguns to pillboxes.
Not only, but mainly, in the United States numerous clubs and groups are dedicated to "Re-Enactment". They recreate scenes of historical battles – mostly of the American wars of liberation and the American Civil War. Therefore, the participants make huge efforts. In every detail, the uniforms resemble those of Washington's troops or the southern or northern state soldiers and even the weapons are reconstructed according to the historical models. Several manufacturers specialized in this target group. There is, for example, Cash Manufacturing in Waunekee, Wisconsin, USA, that provides parts and accessories for the restauration and reconstruction of historical muzzle-loaders. But what is more interesting for us: Cash also offers a range of very peaceful products. These also correspond to historical predecessors and, up to today, are useful companions and, at the same time, demonstrate the craftsmanship of processing brass, copper and nickel silver, a copper, nickel and zinc alloy called "German silver" in the USA and rarely found today.
