An Update On Tinder Tubes.
It seems that I may be right about tinder tubes being pipe lighters. I found this image with explanation.
Rural French pipe-smoker’s outfit – late 19th Century.
I think that the block on the tube is a steel, & you can see the end cap & retrieving hook is attached to a piece of flint.
