For hundreds of years before the invention of the phosphorus match, flint and steel was the most common means of fire making. Many modern day historical reenactors are familiar with the use of charcloth. However, charcloth is actualy a fairly recent development. Prior to charcloth, a variety of natural tinders were used such as wood punk also called "touchwood".
