This magnesium is mostly heavy shavings. Fine shavings burn out very quickly and are not effective in starting a fire when water saturated tinder and kindling are your only material. Heavy shavings are more difficult to light, but when ignited will burn for a long time at a high temperature. This sustained and prolonged burn allow you to light a fire in extreme weather conditions.
