    So today I pulled our Christmas tree out of the living room. I had to clean up the debris left that the vacuum couldn't get. HMMMM nice thin pine branches and a few brown needles. That is tinder!!! So It's time to test my china ferro rods.

    This isn't as creative as it should be but it is interesting how the smoke at the end dances and relights a few times. I did not add anything to the tinder bundle. Just what fell off the tree naturally while dragging it out the front door. Just so happens today there is a contest on fire lighting so Why not try to win...

    Thanks for the link. I just picked up 4 of the firesteels. They are on sale for $4.85 for a pair, free shipping.

    I'd say that just makes it all the more better, whipped cream but you forgot the cherry lol. Good stuff man. Just what I had in mind thanks!

    I've had some fun over time thinking of them myself. Thought of one today just to give somebody a possible idea. Non-dairy creamer fireball ignition source, I will say no more. Probably want to use full protection for that one though neither I nor BCUSA takes any responsibility for idiocy etc etc.

    Default 2nd attempt...

    I hope I can enter a more realistic try at this. Here's my video of some wet fire making in the snow.
