For all those BushCrafty folk ..


Cut it up , make it light and airy , and one strike from your ferite rod ...
So if your going to have rope ? How about Sisal Rope ( Hemp rope to some )

Not a bad idea to have on hand, seems it would come in handy as a nice backup.

Nice idea. I experimented with making my own firelighters by saving wood shavings that were used as packaging material, putting a ball of them in cardboard egg cartons and pouring in melted wax from old candles. They work well but it's a bit of a messy process melting and pouring the wax. 100% recycled though.

Most dry and fluffed up things will do just fine. Striking the right balance between air and fuel is the key.

My dad did this same thing 40 years ago. I thought he was nuts but then I saw them in stores for sale 😁
