Ferro Rod Fatwood Handle Tinder Striker Handmade


Now you can start a fire anytime, anywhere, in all kinds of weather conditions. No need to look for matches, a lighter, a Ferro rod, or tinder, everything you need is self-contained. This fire-starting tool has it all. Fatwood has been used for hundreds of years to start fires because it's naturally soaked in tree resin. No chemicals are used here, it's non-toxic and safe to use. Ignites instantly. Cut from dead pine stumps left after logging, we never cut live trees. Used it to make all kinds of fires: wood stoves, campfires, fireplaces, barbecues, and more. Perfect for survival kits, backpacking, bug-out kits, hiking, preppers, and camping.

To start a fire, use the scraper to remove the fatwood from the handle, and make a mound about the size of a quarter. Ignite the fatwood dust using the Ferro and striker. Add kindling about the size of your small finger. After the kindling starts burning, add larger pieces of wood to the fire (about the size of your wrist works best). Make sure to collect enough wood for your fire. It burns very fast. You should have a roaring fire in minutes.

You only have about 3 hours in the extreme cold until hypothermia sets in. With this Fatwood tool, you will have the ability to start a fire under any conditions. Always have an emergency plan when you go into the woods. Practice makes perfect--build confidence by learning how to make a fire under any conditions. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
