char cloth would never hold up to this sort of advanced flint and steel use as it would fall apart because it is too fragile.

Amadou is like leather and quite robust and is tough so can be used to do this sort of experimentation.

If you really want to see a truly minuscule piece of flint producing an ember watch the video on this link (it's the second vid down) Mark is a true master at flint and steel and I have learnt a lot from watching him work.
