Hammaro: A pretty cool tinder to keep in mind

I’ve seen a good amount of commercial tinder, most of which isn’t that good. Hammaro fire paper card is something I had never tried before until now. Its made in Sweden and it´s not that popular. It can be a bit hard to find but its compact, nontoxic and it works rather well.

Tinder Cards – 18 Pack – For Survival Kits
Because of its thick card format its easy to include in kits and a small piece is enough to turn a firesteel spark into a flame.
In this second video I show how to improvise tinder, in this case using some dry tree bark.

Slick. You could easily stick a small piece in your wallet, say the size of a business card.
