Fire Starting Techniques:

Think safety first! Always use caution when handling and creating fire. 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. 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. Using ferrocerium shavings inside your tinder bundle will increase the chances of success.
