I decided to test out the Sparkie Fire starter and boil some water using my zebra pot.

This is a one handed fire starter. The package came with the wetfire tinder, but I saved it for another day.

I used some birch bark and some twigs as the base of my fire using my hobo stove. I used a DIY cotton fire starter (using mink oil) to get the initial flame.

I had to practice a few times to get the right amount of pressure & force correct. I did find that it produce a lot of sparks and after a few tries was able to light my fire starter and boil some water.
