The Germans (and some others) had a peculiar way of issuing soldiers with butter or cheese that is then carried into battle in small cans like these. For the regular Joe/Jane, this little aluminium can is a handy way of storing small stuff.

When closed, this is air- and waterproof. Lined with plastic on the inside. Diameter about 10 cm.

Condition

In used but nice serviceable condition. We recommend washing this before use.

Saksalainen osaa. Voi pysyi kiinteänä ja rasia viileänä kolmen päivän vaellusreissun ajan lämpötilan huidellessa +10 - +20 C:n välillä. Muista pestä ennen käyttöä.

Siitä en osaa sanoa miten toimii alkuperäisessä käyttötarkoituksessaan, mutta toimii piipputupakan jemmaamisessa paremmin kuin hyvin!

tätä käytettiin ennen selvitymisrasiana kilkkeineen aika paljonkin. Sinne on myös hyvä varastoida pienet nippelit , muistitikut jne varmaan talteen. Voihan siellä kyllä syötävääkin säilyttää muovisisuksensa ansiosta.

Perfect gear that I didn't know how useful it would be.
We use it as the butter-box on the kitchen bench. Keeps flies and cats away from the butter!
Have it in my hunting pack for snacks, jeerky and other things. Keeps it dry and safe.

Just as I expected it to be, as it is German made ;-)
Never had to use something like it before, but plastic ziplock thingies tend to get punctured and leak...fat chance of this happening with this thick alluminium construction and locking system. Multi function pieces of kit are the only things I tend to buy, so, this is nothing more then that : multi-functional.

Toimii. Maksimiaika mistä itsellä kokemusta voin säillyttämisestä, on 10 viikkoa. Kenttäolosuhteet, kesä ja Lapin isompi erämaavaellus. Kolme oli mukana näitä ja hämmästelen säilytyskykyä. Välttelin kyllä auringonpaisteessa säilytystä.

Great tin! Fits almost 150g of beef jerky, so far i've not seen any sign of it wanting to pop the lid even after flying around a bag for six days.

Bought one locally and am very happy with it. It holds plenty of sunflower seeds for a shift at work. Will be ordering more.

It is extremely robust but not water tight, while it would be silly to carry water in it I had hoped to carry things like pickled vegetables in it, but that would leak.

I did try using it as intended and did a days walking with nothing but a small loaf and this with butter. I am glad the British Army never tried to feed me like that, and I wont be doing it again.

I have ordered some rum butter for my next experiment.

I also found that it will store a fish cock removed from its tin, see my comment on the fish cock.

Rakentavaa....
En saa kiinni kunnolla enkä ole heikointa mallia, mutta työkalut pysyy kädessä ja näytän vähän tohon koloon metalliviilaa niin menee "tappi" kolon perille asti niin kuin kuvassa. Valkoinen muoviosa oli terävä sitä hion hienolla hiekkapaperilla Eiköhän tästä kelpopurkki saada. Siisti purnukka.

Adoptoin voirasian sen nimikäyttöön, eli säilyttämään pienemmän määrän voita helpommin saatavilla kuin joka kerta aukaisisin voipaketin (m/meijerivoi) ja lyhyen kokeilujakson jälkeen olen tyytyväinen tuotteeseen aiotun käyttötarkoituksen osalta.

Hankkiessani tuotteen huomasin, ettei kannen sulkumekanismi ihan toiminut ja syyksi diagnosoin sen, että rasian alaosaan kuuluva muovi ei ollutkaan kunnolla kiinni/riittävän syvällä rasian pohjassa. Lievä fyysinen väkivalta ja kiroilu auttoivat näyttämään muoville kaapin paikan ja nyt kannen saa kunnolla kiinni. Muovin (uudelleen)kiinnitys kävi kyllä keskiraskaasta jumpasta, en tiedä onko kyseessä rasian ominaisuus ettei muovi vaeltele itsekseen vai oliko oman kappaleen kohdalla sattunut jonkinlainen valuvinouma joko muovissa tai alumiinissa.

Doesn't do much that a regular snap-on plastic container wouldn't but it's pretty much bearproof.

Buyer take note: According a German friend of mine the use of these was largely discontinued in the 80's, and apparently soldiers were more likely to store their cigarettes in it than anything else.

Täyttää tarkoituksensa paremmin kuin itävallan muovinen rasia. Painoa omalla yksilöllä on 170g, sisälle mahtuu helposti 150g voita, ehkä vähän enemmänkin. Jos oikein sulloisi sen 170g niin yhteyspaino 340g, voissa 720kcal jolloin paketin kaloritiheys 720*1.7/3.4 = 360kcal/100g. Pärjää ainakin kaurahiutaleille ja makarooneille.

Voita on kiva levitellä leivän päälle maastossa, menee paljon paremmin alas kuin kuivana. Kesäisin voi pysyy myös mukavan helppolevitteisenä. Itselläni ei ainakaan ole voi mennyt tässä rasiassa pilalle Suomen kesässä.

Näitä ei varmaan ole koskaan käytetty, tai sitten voita on otettu rasiasta niin hellävaroin, ettei muovipinnassa ollut naarmun naarmua. En tosin keksi millä tämä onnistuu, itse olen lusikalla ottanut ja silläkin saa naarmuja. Ulkoapäin rasia näyttää siltä, kun sitä olisi kannettu vuosikymmenet mukana. Ehkä näitä oli pakko roudata mukana?

I got one of these from another website a few months ago and there great. Keep in mind however that if you use this in the summer and it +25c or higher the butter is gonna start melting, i used this during the drought in sweden 2018, but if it less than +20c then it should be no problem.

Perfect for holding snacks and other small items, the red rubber circle and white plastic piece are removable for easy cleaning. minor scratches and duller metal than i expected, but that's a positive to me. I have tested it, but I am yet to take it out to the field with me. Generally a strong, long lasting, useful product.

Army surplus

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
