For the benefit of the uninitiated, a Tonteldoos (Tinderbox) dates back to times before matches
were available. It was usually a container in which tinder (anything that burns easily) could be stored and kept dry. The box also contained a piece of flintstone and a steel object which produced sparks when the flintstone was struck, lighting the tinder to start a fire (with some practice, no doubt)

A video is available on Youtube to demonstrate a comparison burn of a Clearflame firelighter and regular paraffin firelighters.
