Using Your Fire Steel with a Sulphur Match or Spill:
Once the Ember is established, touch the pointed end of a Sulphur Match/Spill against the ember and wait for the Match to begin to ignite. Please Note: - If the Ember is not well enough established when you touch the point of the Sulphur Match to it, you might see the melting Sulphur begin to extinguish the Ember. If this occurs, immediately remove the Match from the Ember and gently fan the Ember back to life again, then you may touch the point of the Match to the Ember again. Also, because Sulphur burns with a delicate blue flame that is not easy to see in daylight so you might not be able to see if the Sulphur has been ignited. As the Sulphur burns it will ignite the rest of the match, which can then be used to light a fire of a candle.

(Cautionary Note - Burning Sulphur creates very pungent fumes, so it is very important to make sure that you avoid breathing them in as they can damage your lungs). Always practice in a safe environment.
