|Useful for lighting a fire.|
The tinderbox is used primarily for lighting fires (by clicking "use" on the tinderbox, then clicking a log). A tinderbox can be bought in most general stores. It is also used to light and relight candles and lanterns, so any player venturing into a dark area such as the Lumbridge Caves should bring one in case their light source goes out.
The tinderbox is also used regularly in many quests.
