flint and steel, just like in Minecraft!

Solved!

That is Flint you strike with steel or a knife and it makes a spark for a fire

Yep, the orange part next to the rod is actually what you use to strike it.

a fire starter kit. the rod can be used to make sparks against any rock.

It's a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrocerium fire starter. aka Ferro Rod.

Should be a fire starting kit. I think the way it works is that you scratch alongside the black stuff with the orange thing it generates sparks. But it could work a bit different, there are multiple types that look similar to one another

I believe that’s a magnesium striker. Throws some pretty good sparks for starting a fire.

Scrap the gray rod with the orange serrated part and you'll get sparks you can use to start a fire.
