Product Description

The Bear Grills Tinderbox, at 3 nimble ounces, is capable of initiating fire in even the most difficult scenarios. With a high grip rubber exterior and oblong shape for easy maintenance in the palm, this revolutionary tool possesses a grater-like steel cutting surface that creates fine tinder when applied to wood. The Tinderbox works as well with wet wood as with dry, because the grating surface simply shaves off the wet outer layers to expose the dry interior. After shaving wood into the Tinderbox, the cutter opens to allow easy removal of the tinder that's been created. At the point of prepping to build a fire, empty the dry tinder contents of the Tinderbox onto the desired surface of collected items to be burned. Do NOT start a fire in the Tinderbox. Place the plastic cover over the cutting surface when not in use to provide protection in a pocket or gear bag. The Tinderbox's attached magnifying glass can be used for a spark to ignite the gathered tinder if matches are wet, or worse, unavailable. An emergency signaling mirror is located on the bottom of the Tinderbox, because even getting a fire started doesn't equate to finding an escape route.

I will give this Product three stars for its innovativeness. I just got it this week and tried it out today on chaga material. Basically it contains a mirror (why I don't understand), a magnifying glass that will easily light an amber in sufficient sunlight, a container for processed wood or tinder and of course the shredder. If picky, You might get a much cheaper version - and maybe more durable - using any tin container (that might also be used for making tar cloth) and a simple pencil sharpener.

Very clever idea... But, it seems to only work well with softer woods that are nearly perfectly flat. I was able to use it on the split face of some wood but it still took a ton of effort for a little return of kindling.

I absolutely love this product. It is a very cool and unique design, and does what it is supposed to do. It is light-weight, easy to carry, and many might be skeptical about this product not knowing whether or not it will work, but I have started many fires with tinder made from the tool. It is easy and quick to use, and ensures good firestarting tinder anywhere there is wood. The mirror on back is very nice and handy, and the magnifying glass works well for starting fires. The metal grater on the front is heavy duty and never gets dull. Overall 5/5 for usefulness, dependability, and productivity. It makes me much more confident just knowing I have a foolproof way to collect tinder. Even if the tinder is wet, keep it closed in the container, put the cap on, and you can let it dry out. A great product from Gerber and I would say one of the most useful products in the entire Bear Grylls range. Anyone who spends considerable amount of time needs to have one of these!

It does what it's supposed to do. Starts fires well with the lens. I took stars off because the teeth of the grater actually dull very fast but even when dull they are usable but it takes a lot more effort. I wish the box wasn't made of plastic either and more of a metal. Took another star off because if you shave dust and put the cover over to keep the dust in and put it in your pocket expect dusty pockets. It doesn't contain very well

Received the tinder box today. I had some red oak boards ready to work on with it. Unboxed it, put it through some abusive paces on solid red oak for about 45 minutes. In that time, I gathered about a half gallon of fine red oak tinder. I fully expected a dull grating surface after the abuse. I was wrong. It's just as sharp as when I unboxed it. This is a winner!

This is a pretty cool little tool. The mag glass is alright. I have yet been able to start a fire with it and I'm in west Texas, hot sun all the time. The tinder shaver works very well though. Have only used soft woods to shave and once the box is full I can make 2-3 fires out of what is in it.

Good item to have in your car-camping bag. I would not carry something so large if I was backpacking into an area...too much bulk for the limited use. I have tried using the magnifying glass to start a fire and so far have had no success. It appears to be doing its job - but no smoke...no flame.

I had my doubts when ordering but have changed my mind. I actually started a fire using magnifying glass when temp was under 10 degrees Fahrenheit. I found a pine tree limb and shaved it to fill item up with perfect tinder. Was full in couple minutes then I put in backpack so I always have dry bundle with me even in unfavorable conditions. Should be in every hikers pack. Would advise secondary method for fire as you need full sun to use glass. On cloudy day it will not work.
