2. Char cloth
Char cloth is a burned tinder product that is ideal for fire starting with old fashioned flint and steel sets, or when using the sun's rays to start a fire with a magnifying glass. To make this handy material, just pack a metal box with cattail fluff. Peirce the box with a nail to make a small hole. Then place the box into a campfire for 5 minutes. Use a stick to move the box out of the fire when the time is up, let it cool, and now you have premium char!
