Leo May needed a sturdy lunch box to take down the mines of Sudbury, so he designed one, built to last and endure the rigours of the mines. The 10' model is the original Leo May made for himself and him co-wokers. Interior cavity can pack a lunch including a beverage flask.

Hand made .040 #3003" utility rustproof aluminum. Three sizes of nickel-plated rivets for extra strength. Hardware is steel with polished nickel-plating. Handcrafting produces irregularities in the finish that does not affect wear or durability.
