EXOTAC Tinder Tin Shavings

No tax

Struggling to light a fire? Fatwood is the answer. This natural product derived from the resin rich heartwood of pine trees has a very long history for being used to start fires. Exotac is brought to you a tinder tin full of fatwood shavings to aid you in lighting your fire whatever the weather conditions. Once the tin is empty it can be used as a tinder box or even to make char cloth in.


Fatwood comes from pine tree stumps that contain a large amount of resin. It lights quickly, burns hot, and is wind and moisture tolerant. This Fatwood is 100% natural and grown in Georgia, USA. It is recovered from the lumber industry as waste and repurposed as the tinderTIN™ fire-starting materials. Carry a fatwood EXOTAC tinderTIN™ with you, and you'll never be without easy-to-light tinder. 

EXOTAC tested a large range of tinder both natural and synthetic and these two came out on top when evaluated on flammability, water resistance and burn time. The fatwood shavings can be easily lit with an open flame or with a little practice, a ferrocerium fire starter like the EXOTAC nanoSTRIKER™.
