Fat wood feather sticks Iíve got to light, but without magnesium, itís tricky to make a flame with just the stuff youíve found in the woods. I carry jute twine for tinder wherever I have a fire steel. I find that a slow-ish strong bulldozing action will drop a larger load of hot sparks where you want them, rather than quick strikes on the steel.
