Char cloth
by: Dustin

Altoids cans and old t-shirt cloth work well too - avoid the man-made materials if you can, stick to making char cloth out of cotton, where possible.

Do NOT get the char cloth damp, it will not light - otherwise, it takes a spark quite well.

Have a couple other tricks up your sleeve - if you only have 1 thing/method/technique, you don't have ANYTHING when the chips are down.

The best survival gear is between your ears.
