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 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!

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 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.

Great solution for producing fire starting material. Microplane shaves off wood which is caught in the box behind the plane. By rotating the lid you can remove only the amount you need and store any excess in the box for later use. Magnifying lens provides a built-in alternative source for fire starting which can save matches etc. for when the sun isn't shining. Very good build quality.

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

Firstly I receive disorder very quickly. This is an excellent device, it's like a cheese grater with a box attached, and a magnifying glass and mirror. The idea is that you grate pieces of wood to create burnable material. You can grate the material as you walk along. There is a cover included for the grater. This is the best piece of survival equipment I have purchased.

This actually worked pretty well on first try. I can definitely already see some wear in the grate though. I just wish that it was made by a different company that truly cared about the quality of its products because this is an outstanding concept.
