EASY TO LIGHT
Getting a fire started with TinderSticks is as easy as 1, 2, 3. And with a Swedish Firesteel Army or Scout you can be sure to light your fire in any weather.
In 1995 our founder, Michael Odqvist, came across an age-old secret - MayaSticks. He was fascinated by the sheer brilliance of this resinous kindling. Not only was it a quick, easy and reliable way to get a fire going, the sticks were also completely natural, produced from waste - the stumps left from felled pine trees - by locals in Guatemala.
All-natural tinder, chemical free with up to 80% resin content. Our Fatwood comes from the stumps of a pine tree. These pines are cultivated and do not occupy rain forest areas. They are a non-endangered species, yielding a product that is sustainable, economically viable and environmentally responsible. By making use of the stumps, we are reducing overall waste while creating a sustainable and safe by-product. Verified under the SCS Salvaged Wood & Fiber™ standard for using 100% reclaimed material.
