Sometimes you need a little help igniting wood, or Esbit tablets with a flint and steel and this is just the answer.

It is an eco-friendly flammable piece of impregnated material of a fibrous nature, which once ignited burns slowly like a candle.

Only a small amount is required and it makes a great alternative to finding dry Silver Birch Bark or using tampons, which sometimes burn too quickly.

The pack consists of 6 sheets of card, each 20cm x 10cm, perforated into 30 strips. From experience I find I only need a 3cm x 3cm piece to get my Honey Stove going.

So in essence one pack is enough to light 120+ fires.

The technique I learned from Colin Ibbotson on the last TGO Challenge, who used a Bushbuddy the whole 2 week trip.

Take a 3cm x 3cm piece and split it in two. Put one half in the cooker and build a small 'temple fire' over it using dry twigs. Light the second piece with a flint and steel, and use it like a slow burning match, placing it on top of the first piece under the twigs.

Enough heat is generated to get most damp twigs burning and once this is lit, the fire can easily be increased.

In the case of an Esbit tablet. I would use a flint and steel to light a very small piece of it and then place the tablet on top, allowing the flames to catch.

And it is biodegradable too!

Tinder Card's great stuff
Monday, 25 January 2016  | 

Go a pack of this with a Honey Stove Titanium. Only a couple of quid or so, so why not. Great stuff, lights with a spark, a small square burns for quite a while, long enough to get a fire going in a wood burning stove if you have some kindling to hand. I found it best to split/peel back the card to half way so it exposes the flufy inside and makes a more 3D shape, this gets a hotter flame going and the 3D shape lets you prop small twigs and shavings around it. I seems to be semi water proof, the stearin wax on the outside acts like a water repellent. You get plenty in a pack. I put some in a small zip bag and slip it in various hand locations in my kit. Great to use Birch bark, jute, dandy lion heads and fungi; but this may just save the day as a reliable back up - or just sack the fungi etc and use this in the first place - it is good stuff and I hope it stays on the UK market.

Very handy to carry a couple of squares for use as a taper or tinder. Fluff up the edge to catch sparks from flint & steel.

This works well. I just need to learn how little of it I can use at a time.

simple to use and effective

great in wet conditions if you want to get a fire lit swiftly. I certainly find in the dry one or two squares are enough to get the kindling going. an effective tinder material (used in fire box, honey stove and open fire)

Simple and works
Wednesday, 19 November 2014  | 

The tinder card is simple and works well. You don't need much if you have small twigs etc. A strip of 1x5 cm works to light coals, too (Honey/Hive makes a good BBQ). I try to use natural tinder if available, so I just keep a small piece along the stove.

A small piece on top of an Esbit cube makes lighting with a spark much easier.

Ideal to stash in your emergancy kit or as part of your cooking system
Wednesday, 20 August 2014  | 

I was recently teaching teaching groups of cadets fire lighting with flint and steel in the driving rain and used this as an inexpensive light weight cheat to carry with them to make there lives easier. Yes you can collect silver birch bark and other bits of lint to get a fire going but this really saves the hassle it lights directly from a spark and burns long enough to even light standard issue hexamine tablets.
