Whistle Creek Sardine Can Survival Kit – the lifesaver in a tin


You never know when you’re going to need help in an emergency. Disaster could strike on that innocent fishing trip with Aunt Maude, or during a simple trip down to the stores for some more egg custard. But you don’t have to be unprepared, peeps, oh no. Now you can carry around a little kit of essentials to give you Boy Scout super powers in an instant.

The Whistle Creek Sardine Can Survival Kit is, as the name might suggest, a little tin full of useful bits and pieces which could save your bacon in a pinch. The can contains a whistle, compass, first aid instructions, matches, a razor blade, fire starter and much much more. We’re talking a complete mobile pharmacy and hardware store here. Almost.


And of course the best thing about the kit is the fact that it fits into a pocket or compartment as easy as a box of mints, and let’s face it, mints are never going to dress that wound or catch a fish. So next time you’re faced with a choice of Mintos or survival, we’re confident you’ll make the right decision. Right? The can is priced at $11.37.

  • You carry this around? I m pretty into all that preperadness and survivalism. but dont know about this. might be a good converssation item from the Macgyver pickup approach ;) Allright for a bugout bagback, but for that youd just buy this and ziplock it. Some first aid stuff and a small multitool pocketknife with a built in lighter is my Bear Grylls items of choice!

    • Yeah I think it’s more like a fancy first aid kit, rather than a full on survival pack. But cute nonetheless. :)

  • Nice addition as a bugout
    bagback backup.. . Some first aid
    stuff and a small multitool pocketknife with a built in lighter is my
    Bear Grylls items of choice! Along with some sugary mints years out of date.
