Don't be without fire ever again, this item is for true pyromaniacs and is not a toy.
Fire Starting Techniques:
Prepare a fire pit with kindling at a safe distance (at least 10 feet) from any shelter or combustible structures. Then construct a tinder bundle by gathering dry, light and very fine combustible materials. Some examples are; dried seed heads, down, or an abandoned birds nest. Also, commercial items such as cotton pads, cigarette filters, or even pocket lint. The tinder bundle should be at least the size of a softball, the larger the bundle the greater chance it has to light a more substantial form of kindling. Scraping a small amount of the ferrocerium rod into the tinder bundle can greatly increase the chances of success. For safety it is best to place the tinder bundle inside the fire pit, always use caution when handling and creating fire! Hold the striker at a 45 degree angle with the flat side against the Ferro Rod (the serrated edges should be facing up) and using pressure, quickly scrape towards the tinder bundle and Ferrocerium shavings. If done correctly the Ferrocerium will crackle and ignite the tinder bundle and the larger kindling inside your fire pit!
