Fatwood Fire Starting Sticks 1b. Camping Survival Gear Emergencies


1 lb. of natural fatwood 9"- 10" long sticks, hand-cut in USA.

Fire is crucial to survival, and fatwood has been used for hundreds of years to start fires. Naturally soaked in the tree's resin. Non-toxic and ignites instantly. Cut from dead pine stumps left after logging, we never cut live trees. Use for all kinds of fires, including wood stoves, campfires, fireplaces, and barbecues. Perfect for survival kits, backpacking, bug-out kits, hiking, preppers, hunting, earthquake kits, and camping. We put a cut in our fatwood so it breaks in half easily, so you can get 2 sticks out of one stick, using half the amount of fatwood when making a fire.

Perfect for camping, bug-out kits, backpacking, emergency kits, preppers, hikers, bushcraft, and survival kits. Light weight easy to carry. Keep a bag in your car for emergencies. Use for all kinds of fires, camp wood stoves, and campfires.

Fatwood is naturally soaked in the tree's resin. No chemicals are used here, non-toxic and safe to handle. Ignites instantly burns very hot. Fatwood is waterproof, lightweight, and will ignite with a Ferro Rod, Lighter or Matches. Takes two or three sticks to get your fire started. Make sure you have kindling ready to add to your fire.

Package was torn in transit from the fat wood rubbing on the plastic. Didnt receive full order as a few sticks fwll out in transit.

This arrived sooner than expected. It was a nice quantity of wood.

I am very happy with this purchase. First, the owner, Steve, responded very quickly to my message to him when I purchased this item. I was burned (no pun intended) by another vendor selling me crummy "fatwood" and told him of my concerns. He assured me that the quality would be high. Second, he was correct. The fatwood is silky and smooth when you shave it and thoroughly saturated with natural resins and has a wonderful smell that you never tire of. I will definitely buy from Steve again! We don't have this kind of pine here in the PNW so I'd rather buy it than travel 100 miles to fetch for myself - and this is great stuff. The lighter was fun too. Although the flame is not adjustable and burns heartily, it makes for a great novelty and is definitely a "bushcraft" gadget! Thank you Kaeser Wilderness! See you again!

This is especially unique you never know where life will take you ? This is great to keep in my Chevy weather camping or stranded this wilderness shop has legit everything you could possibly need to save the day!

Will shop here again
