I’m trying slowly to get back into bushcraft after the last few months of traveling and van building. I purchased two new products to try out this week An Uberleben tinder wick and a ferro rod refill from Exotac for the XL fire-rod. I couldn’t afford the full handled model of the fire rod just now but the refill is less than half the price and Ill try and re-handle it myself with a piece of deer horn.

The tinder wick Ive been meaning to either make myself or to purchase for a while. I doubt whether Ill keep it in the tin it came with but rather place it in the tobacco tin i use for keeping my tinder dry.
