neutral  Victor Dewsbery: I think the stove here is for liquid fuel. I would use a poker to poke about in the cinders of a solid fuel fire.

igniter hook

I don't think it is a poker - you use a poker to poke about in the cinders, but I think your "Anzündhaken" operates some sort of mechanism which creates a spark and lights the fire.

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: You could probably even get away with just calling it an "igniter" / "ignitor" (IMHO). :-)
