did the fire get smothered?
Chris, the beatles have long since left the tinder; he mentions drying the fungi for a week or so.
Jack, the sparky thing is a firesteel, man-made flint, or misch-metal. army and scout versions by light my fire are probably the most popular, but many kinds available.

With the deepest of respect, this is a ferocium rod, NOT a fire steel.
