How to use the Magnesium Fire Starter
WARNING: Gasoline is too hazardous to use but
kerosene and diesel fuel are acceptable.
Prop the edge of the tool on the ground at angle as displayed
Scrape the narrow side with a blade perpendicular to the marked "Shaving Edge"
Gather a small amount of the magnesium shavings (about size of quarter) next to or over the tinder
With the tool still supported on the ground, scrape the "Sparking Insert" an inch away from the magnesium pile with a blade at a 45 degree angle
This should create sparks that will ignite the shavings and tinder into a flame you can then use to build your fire.
