It only takes one small spark to ignite Char Cloth!

If your lighter runs out of fuel, you can use the spark wheel to ignite the cloth.

If you are without flint or ferro rod you may use almost any glassy hard stone to create a spark from a piece of steel. Remember, it is not the stone which throws the spark, it is the steel. Always carry a carbon steel knife.

If you know how to properly gather/prepare tinder, it only takes one sheet of char cloth to start a fire.

Familiarize yourself with proper primitive fire making techniques as well as modern fire making methods.

If you're a hiker, camper, backpacker, prepper, survivalist, or adventurer char cloth is an essential item for your bug out bag, backpack, glove box, emergency kit.

Char Cloth and Fire Kits make great gifts and stocking stuffer too!

I used to make my own from old pieces of corduroy. Thanks for the reminder.
