    Yeah the plexiglass ones look cool, but even the small ones from what I saw were $75...I found a guy on bladeforums who has a few machined aluminum ones for $65 shipped so I went with that...Ill post my review here when it arrives!

    Well I got the fire piston today and I have ben playing with it all day...The char cloth is by far much easier to get lit than the tinder fungus I have, but I realize I have "false" tinder fungus otherwise known as shelf or hoof fungus, so its not as good as true tinder fungus which is found on birch trees...Also the tinder fungus I have is still damp from when I got it two days ago in the rain, so it could just be its not dry enough? I alos read that the inside of the pods on milkweed also make a good tinder for this fire piston...Anyway this thing is just plain fun to play with, and I already got a fire going with some char cloth...Here are some pics I took...

    you know the steel wool and 9V battery is a neat little trick...good to know in case your maybe stuck at home cause of a winter storm, and lets say theres no more matches in the house...no lighters to be found either, and too much snow to drive anywhere, but you have wood and a stove to burn it in, just no way of lighting the fire...well anyone who works with wod should have soem steel wool, and almost every single house has a smoke alarm that takes a 9V battey...this coud bail you out or you could just have fun with this to start a camp fire...

    I'm planning on lighting our Shamash (for Hannukah) with a different method every night. I've used one of those little o-ringed survival lighters, a Zippo clone, and my Colibri Trident. Tomorrow, I'll light one of those little pencil torches with a flint and steel and use that. Maybe pre-lighting a bit of fire-stick and then using that would work out, and I haven't used a Bic yet.

    interesting....I am not sure when you are suppose to light it becasue I am not jewish, but if its during the day or even at night for that matter, I migh suggest trying to get a candle wick to light with a magnified glass in the sunlight...if your suppose to light it at night you cna keep the candle going all day...Just an idea..?
