1. Hold the firestarter so that the tip is pressing on the ground.
  2. Place it near dry grass, leaves, moss, clothes, dryer lint, paper, etc…
  3. Place the blade on the flint at a 45 degree angle and scrape downward.
  4. If you are lighting tinder, scrape off a small pile of magnesium.
  5. Next, ignite the magnesium with the flint. Place the tinder on the burning magnesium.

The magnesium will dry out the tinder and start a fire!
