These tinder sticks are a waste of money.
Trevor
There is nothing better than fatwood which is what these Mayasticks are for starting a fire.....they light easily and burn hot!
John
I didn't try to get it started with a Fire Steel - not sure if that would work or not.

I got some of these Mayan Resinwood sticks and a magnesium fire starter at a Sporting Goods Show a few years back.

Shave a few splinters off the chock-full of resin sticks, strike with the magnesium striker, and you have a campfire going quickly. If you have trouble finding burnable material, one of the Mayan firesticks will burn strong and last quite a long time. They came in handy more than a few times on damp and wet conditions while camping with my sons' Scout Troop. These Mayan sticks are FAR superior to Georgia or Alabama fatwood. I bought mine in Tennessee!

The snuff-can package has the shaving part already done for you, but you'll need additional tinder if you want your fire to last.

They are also great to keep in the car with some tinder and matches for those 'just in case' situations.

i was so happy to find these online. i lived in Guatemala for a couple years, and got really spoild using these resin-rich sticks (available in any market there since a larg percentage of people in that country still heat their homes and cook using open wood fire) to start any type of fire. they are better than any lighter fluid you can find and they smell AMAZING (of pine) as opposed to toxic, and they won't contaminate your food! personal tip that isn't mentioned on the package: they work even better if you can splinter them into fine strips with a knife. you might have to smash one stick with a hammer to do that since i found that the ones in my package came in thick wedges.

The product, called fatwood by most, is excellent. It will light under any condition. If you shave off slivers it will light with only a spark. If you are a camper or into wilderness survival, fatwood is possibly the best tinder out there.

This package, however, is extreamly overpriced. My local harware store sells a pound of fatwood for $3, 5 pounds for $10. Go to your local harware store and look in the fire place section.

I got these and had to test them immediately since I had never used them before. I shaved some toothpick sized slivers off one stick to make a small pile. Then striking my Swedish Firesteel - Army Model only a couple times I was able to get the pile to ignite. A lot quicker than I expected. The pile remained on fire for about 2 minutes which would have been sufficient to start a fire in the conditions I was in and the pile was pretty small. I tried it again with the same results. Wanting to demonstrate to my wife I made a third attempt. Of course that time it took a couple minutes of striking to get the pile to ignite. Not sure why it took longer but figured it was because my impatient wife was standing over me. Regardless I was glad that it happened so I wouldn't expect that quick of a light everytime. Cool product

It contains only a few sticks, which makes it is expensive for the quantity. It comes in a small paper box unlike the big plastic bag in the picture. Half of the sticks did not have much resin but the other half was OK with plenty of resin.

From my small test I can tell these will burn well, but this is not the reason for this review. I wasn't sure exactly what I was getting, in terms of quantity. I received (in a loose, open cardboard box, not a sealed pouch) five approximately 12 inch sticks and two 7 to 9 inch sticks. This is a little more then in the description (6 sticks). The box is labeled 180-220 grams, which it may be slightly more. I will say that I am pleased with what I got, but I would feel better storing these in an air/water-tight container, probably a ziplock bound with paracord.
