This high quality water tight 1oz Tobacco Tin contains Jute Tinder Cord that has been made from natural plant fibres, which are loosely twisted into a 3-yarn cord. It is the best jute that there is for traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ fire lighting. it is easy to carry a few of these cords in your tinderbox ready to make a Tinder Bundle without having to scavenge around for dried bulky grasses, plant downs and other materials to make your Tinder Bundle. It takes just one piece of Jute Tinder Cord to create a fire.
Jute Tinder Cords are perhaps one of the easiest ways to turn a glowing ember into a flame. In fact I would say, without hesitation, that it is so easy even a 6-year old can do it. You might say ‘Its Childs play!’
It has taken us quite a few years to source this outstanding Jute Tinder Cord, since many of our previous examples were quite hard to unravel, being made into tightly twisted cords and ropes. Some were made with lots of thin yarns that were then twisted into strands that made up the rope, untwisting them to get at the individual fibres was impractical, taking far too much time to do so. After a long search we sourced a three strand laid rope called a 'plain', which was perfect for use as Jute Tinder Cord. It is simple to untwist and turns a char cloth ember into a flame in just seconds.
This 100% natural plant tinder is a must for everyone’s Tinderbox, Survival Tin or Fire Lighting Kit.
For more information about making fire from Jute Tinder Cord please take a look at some of our ‘Fire Lighting’ articles in the Bushcraft Articles and Tips page.
