What size Kindling bundle!

A common mistake made these days is confusing tinder with kindling. Partly I think it comes from the term "tinder dry", but using a ferocium rod and calling it flint and steel does not help either. For the student of "flint, steel & tinderbox" fire lighting this can be confusing.
Tinder is what catches and holds a spark struck from steel with a sharp edged flint or similar stone.
Kindling is anything from dried grass to sticks.
This is not meant as a crtisism of your post, just my thoughts on tinder.
With respect and regards.
