    Looks cheesy, works great

    When I got this in my BattlBox subscription, I thought it was a wasted item. After finally getting around to give it an honest chance, I have changed my mind: *now* I think it is a "stupidly brilliant" piece of gear:

    - Stupid, because *I* should have thought of it

    - Brilliant because it works far better than I expected.


    1) The shavings are fine grained. Translated, this means that you get a lot of surface area that is very easy to ignite with a ferro rod

    2) Efficient: when used with fatwood, you can produce a bunch of fires (I'm guessing you could easily get 50 fires from a single piece of fatwood)

    4) Has a small collector to collect the grated material. You can pre-fill it before taking it with you. I think it holds enough to build 2-4 fires (maybe more)

    and with the pack rat tinder maker I can make a substantial

    pile of thin scrapings which can easily be ignited with a ferro

    rod. Great source of tinder when the situation is wet or snowy.
