Jute Tinder Candles

  • Easy to use
  • Contained in a water tight 1oz Tobacco Tin

This high quality water tight 1oz Tobacco Tin contains specially developed Tinder-In-A-Tin™ Jute Tinder Candles that can be lit directly from the sparks created by any ferrocerium rods, such as from our PyroFlint™ range. They are just over 3-Inch (80mm) long and made from high quality jute cord that has been saturated with wax, making them waterproof as well as providing the fuel that allows each candle to burn for more than 8 minutes before it becomes impractical to be held in the fingers. It will then burn for a further 4 minutes, or so, before it is full exhausted, giving a total burn time of in excess of 12 minutes. The flame burns to a whopping height of nearly 2-Inches, and is certainly hot enough to set light to even the dampest tinder or kindling.

Lighting the Jute Tinder Candle could not be simpler:

  1. Take out a Jute Tinder Candle and crush one end of it against a hard surface or between the fingers.
    Tip: Keep any was that may crumble off so that it can be burned when the Jute Tinder Candle is a light, thus extending the burn time.
  2. When the end has been crushed you should fluff the jute fibres apart, making what looks like a fine bristled brush. Make sure that you brush off any excess bits of wax leaving the bristles as clean as possible.
  3. Lay the Jute Tinder Candle on its side on a dry surface and then using a Fire Flint Ferrocerium rod, strike sparks onto the bristly end of the candle. The sparks should instantly ignite the candles fluffed up fibres creating a flame.
  4. You can use the flaming Jute Tinder Candle to light another standard candle and the blow out the Jute Tinder Candle, which can be used in this manner time and time again. Alternatively, use the Jute Tinder Candle to directly light a camp fire.

There are 20 X Jute Tinder Candles in each high quality water tight 1oz Tobacco Tin.
