It burns at over 5,000 degrees which is what helps it to start any type of material, wet or dry.
CAMPFIRES: Hold the firestarter so that the tip is pressing on the ground near dry grass, leaves, moss, cloth, dryer lint, paper, etc. Place the blade on the flint at a 45-degree angle (perpendicular to the flint) and scrape in a downward motion. If you are lighting tinder, scrape some magnesium shavings into a small pile about the size of a quarter. Next, ignite the magnesium with the flint. Place tinder on the burning magnesium. The magnesium will dry out the tinder and start a fire.
BARBECUES: Apply lighter fluid to your charcoal or wood. Aim your firestarter so that sparks land on the lighter fluid. Strike the flint and your fire will be started.
FIREPLACES: Scrape the magnesium into a pile on some newspaper or the wrapping of a Duralog and ignite it with the flint.
