Sewing kit for war ww1
Interesting, but we could use some explanation. Is this something you made (looks like new), or is this actual WWI surplus? ...and if this is actual military issue, whose military?
This is a genuine new item of war ww1, which comes from a stok of a surplus store of the French army, bought years ago.
That is a nice piece of kit right there.
That is nice. I wish some of those types of useful items were still made nowadays.
Betcha can EASILY find a manufacturer over in China willing to do so and make it quite affordable! Or Vietnam, or Thailand, or ....
I can see these things hanging on accessory racks at REI and a multitude of outdoors shops for sure. Also at many luggage stores -- right next to the luggage tags.

Simple enough to make on a lathe or on a CNC machine w/ a 4th axis --- I'm actually working out adding a 4th axis to my Nomad --- I now know what my first project will be.
One word: plastic.

Very cool but it looks like it takes up a lot of space considering you can make your own that's the size of a postage stamp and 1/4" thick
then you don't have the big wood thing you use to darn the holes in your socks.
which is a arguably the most common sewing soldiers did (along with buttons) in those days.
some big clunky things serve a purpose beside wasting space unlike me
I bet most guys today will have to look up what darn means much less know how to do it.
That said how useful/hard is a darning egg that small? I'm sure it's better than nothing but what my grandmother taught me on was much bigger.
So is mine
