    I think the English term is 'tinderstick'.. Sounds a lot less interesting!

    The "barrel" part is filled with dried leafes of a certain plant which I know as "tonteldoek" You then use the round piece of metal to hit on a piece of fire stone (vuurklip). The sparks lights up the tonteldoek which is not on fire but glows only. You place the the glowing tonteldoek below dried grass or sticks, blow and you have fire.

    Ek het so goed moontlik in die Brits probeer verduidelik, hoop julle verstaan!

    From what I can see and feel, the stuff inside looks like some sort of linnen or cotton cloth that has previously been burned.

    It only takes a couple of tries to get one of the sparks to land inside the tonteldoos, then the material/cloth inside starts to smolder.

    This can then by 'tapped' out onto drie tinder to start a fire.

    You do, however need a good quality 'vuurklip'.

    Hierdie is 'n "tonteldoos" en word gebruik om vuur mee te maak. Voortrekkers het dit gebruik voor die era van vuurhoutjies. Die "####" (koper silinderhouer wat brandbare materiaal bevat), word vasgehou met die onderste 3 vingers en dan word die vuurklip tussen wysvinger en duim, teenaan die houer vasgehou. Die vuurklip word nou met die vuurslag (ovaal yster met hoe koolstof inhoud) geslaan wat vonkies maak. Die vonkies "behoort" bo-op die brandbare materiaal (tontel - gewoonlik katoen wat swart geskroei is) te beland en begin gloei. Begin nou liggies blaas totdat dit behoorlik gloei. Bring nou eksterne brandmateriaal soos 'n voelnessie nader, druk die "tontel van onder af effens uit sodat die gloeiende "kooltjie kontak maak met die nessie en begin liggies blaas totdat daar 'n behoorlike vlam is. Maak seker al jou hout vir die braaivleis staan reg. Wanneer die vuur behoorlik brand, druk nou die tontel terug in die dosie en hou die proppie op wat die kooltjie smoor.

    Baie handig om saam te vat op 'n 4x4 trip as die vuurhoutjies op raak of nat word.

    Gaan kyk ook op You Tube, daar is 'n paar videos waarna 'n mens kan kyk. Daar is ook voorbeelde van hoe om een te maak.
