The flint we use has been specially knapped for us to ensure each edge is ultra sharp which is ideal for creating sharks when used with a traditional Fire Steel but can also be used with Ferrocerium Rods as a 'striker'. However we do advise caution when using our Flint, as it is incredibly sharp! There are 5 pieces of flint included in our Tinder Bundle packs and come in a variety of shapes & sizes.
20 x Sulphur Spills
Sulphur Matches have been use for thousands of years as a method for creating a fast and direct flame from a glowing ember, such as from a piece of Char Cloth without the need to go through the Tinder Bundle technique, which is so very smoky and only suitable for outdoor use. Since the sulphur in a Sulphur Match ignites at a temperature of around 440 Centigrade, by simply placing the tip of the Sulphur Match against the glowing ember, it will begin to melt and then it will ignite, thus it is suitable for making a direct flame in confined spaces.
Once alight, it will burn with a beautiful blue flame, which is not always easy to see, especially if there is a lot of ambient light, such as sunlight. However, if you are not able to see a flame, you can bet your bottom dollar that you will smell it, because when sulphur burn in air, it gives off pungent and suffocating fumes that will choke you if you breath them in; these fumes are sulphur dioxide. When the burning sulphur takes hold it will ignite the wooden spill, which can then be used to ignite a candle or fire etc.
Sulphur Matches are safe to use, and keep well in a traditional Tinderbox, or other container, since they cannot accidentally be ignited by friction. Sulphur Matches will only ignite when heated by a glowing ember or flame.

Kapok is a natural fibre that is water resistant and will spark easily when used with a Ferrocerium Fire Steel. Add to a Tinder bundle to increase the ember size. Add a little bit of petroleum Jelly to the edge of your tinder bundle and it will burn like a candle wick!! Warning...do not do this in doors.
2g x 100% Cotton Char Cloth
Our 100% Cotton Char Cloth can easily be used to create an embers in a whole variety of differing and wondrous ways and is one of the easiest Tinder's to use. Once the Char Cloth has caught an Ember and it has become established by gently fanning it with your hand, it can be transferred to a Tinder Bundle and then blown into a flame if you are outdoors. Alternatively, if you are indoors, it can be used to ignite a direct flame with one of our Traditional Sulphur Matches, which can be used to ignite a fire or a candle.
2g x Amadou
Amadou is made from the Horse’s Hoof Fungus, which has a fine, velvety layer resembling suede leather. This suede-like trama layer is sandwiched between a tough nut-like, outer, layer called the Cuticle and the pores, which are thousands of tiny tubes all packed together. The Horse’s Hoof Fungus is mainly found on dead trees such as the Birch and Beech, and it resembles a horse’s hoof – hence its common name. Amadou is very hard to source, and even more difficult to make well.
Amadou was used by our ancient forefathers because it makes excellent tinder able to catch even the vaguest of sparks, it is probably one of the best tinder that can be found in nature. It is has a beautiful velvet feel and is as resilient as suede leather and can be stored indefinitely. Amadou has been used for fire-making for thousands of years, and would have been found in virtually every travellers tinder box because of its great reliability.
