The ultimate and natural way to start a fire in any weather. Don't use harmful chemicals with noxious fumes to start your fire! Our tinder starters are made of stumps from cultivated pine (fatwood) from the highlands of Guatemala and Mexico. With their 80% resin content, our tinder starters are extremely easy to light and work even when wet since it is the resin (oil) that burns not the wood. They burn long and hot and they are the perfect companion to our Swedish FireKnife™!
