    VERY cool of you guys to do this!  Really shows how much you can learn (and quickly) from 1st hand experience.  Kudos to you.

    You don't have to use a knife. In fact, you shouldn't because you could dull it very easily and you can use a rock just the same.

    Check out FireSteel . com – they have great fints & strikers. Or Google flint & steel or fire steel.
    In truth, a mag block with the tiny flint they attach to the side is NOT the best fire steel. It has a big magnesium block, yes, but really you don't need that once you get the idea down of making your own tinder.
    I've had that tiny little flint on the side of the mag block come off, & they are damn hard to find on a forest floor. Get something bigger – it will throw off MUCH better sparks.

    Flint & steel work fine, but it's a bit different to use than a magnesium block or a man-made flint & striker.
    For a flint rock & steel striker (like the mountain men used to use), you need some char cloth first. Once that's made, hold the char cloth on TOP of the piece of flint (rock), then strike downward with the steel. The flint show throw a spark into the char cloth, which should continue to burn until you can get your fire lit from it.

    Actually, brown leaves are one of the worst tinders you can use. They tend to smolder rather than burn. Tiny, tiny sticks are better – but start the fire first with very light, fluffy material – shredded (dead) inner bark, cattail down, shredded & fluffed up dead plants, thistle down — experiment BEFORE you're in a real survival situation.

    Just go to a outdoors store. It looks like a block of grey/silver stuff (magnesium) and a cylindrical black thing on the side (the flint)
