This kit was initially developed so that Cubs and Scouts could gain experience in making Char Cloth for fire making. Since then, it has become a popular kit for many budding Bushcraft enthusiasts who want a simple, but reliable Char Cloth kit. It has everything that is needed, except the fire that is, to allow anyone to simply and easily manufacture their own high quality Char Cloth.
Since Char Cloth tins are usually made from steel, which, although a very durable material, that is able withstand the high temperatures needed to pyrolyse cotton to make Char Cloth, there is always a slight issue with the metal rusting. When used for the first time the heat from the fire will burn off the tins protective antirust coating, leaving the steel exposed to the air. So it suggested that after the first use, the tin, be sprayed in some black BBQ or Exhaust Pipe paint, which will both protect the tin as well as give it an attractive yet practical finish. This will protect the tin from the elements allowing you to use it for Char Cloth making for many years.
