the reason I ask, is because without a lighter, wax is hard to melt and ignite. it's a good design, just hard to implement if you are starting fire with a bow or the like

is this for convenience or survival?

It's for both! it's good for just starting a fire in your wood stove or for cooking hotdogs. Also if you ever got lost in the woods or anything else you can use it.

Nicely done!

However, I would recommend that the wax be melted in a "double boiler" (a pot siting in a pot of boiling water). Otherwise, there is a real risk that the was will catch on fire.

baecker03, I would consider it to be for convenience until you need it for survival. I am planning to go ice fishing this weekend. Getting a fire going on the ice and snow can be a pain. Something like this seems perfect.
