Tinder from Pencil Sharpened Wood

Don’t worry, I am not about to suggest you burn all your pencils.

I came across this nice little life hack on the Emelie Learning Bushcraft channel.

The guy from Arctic Wolf Outdoors Adventures showed her how to make tinder to start a fire by ‘sharpening’ small twigs using a pencil sharpener.

I hadn’t considered that before, but when you do think about it, it is a great idea.
