Made a little fire with my fire piston.
More on fire pistons, see -
What is a fire piston and how do you use it
Charcoal from a burned out fire works well in the pistons as well. A little harder to get the ember. If you want to send the top launching like a rocket put a few drops of gas or lighter fluid on yer cloth
Kind of OT but have you ever wondered how primitive people invented what is really very advanced tool like the fire piston? It is a huge advancement over flint and iron or fire bows. LOL and probably easier to light on some days than my zippos. The entire concept of sealed compression = combustion just does not seem like something a very primitive culture would stumble across.
Wiki isn't always right, but they say it came out of SEA.
