Its good, but if you don't have matches, you probably wouldn't have batteries or steel wool either. good though!

Steel wool is great for tinder, and batteries can be used for many things.

But, for example, if I was in the wilderness, lost, alone, and confused, I doubt I would be able to find a Battery and steel wool.
