The Exotac TinderTIN contains either shavings or splinter of Fatwood, which acts as perfect firestarting tinder. Grown in Georgia, USA, the Fatwood is 100% natural and comes in a reuseable tin with a screw on lid.
Fatwood comes from pine tree stumps that contain a large amount of resin, meaning it lights very quickly, burns hot and can tolerate wind and moisture. Otherwise discarded, the TinderTin puts this material to excellent use!
Choose from either Fatwood shavings or splinters. The shavings are easily lit with an open flame or a ferrocerium fire starter, such as the NanoStriker XL. The splinters are best lit with another tinder, such as shavings, cotton balls, dry grass or an open flame. Stack the Fatwood in a log cabin style to increase the available oygen and light the thinnest portion of the splinter, usually the end that it is sharpest.
