I think it is pure chance whether you get a piece of wood with enough resin in it to be useful. I did not. The pile of scrapings I made from this would not catch a spark from a fire steel. Even when I lit it with a lighter it only burned for a few seconds. A dry cotton ball burns longer. I will keep using my vaseline soaked cotton balls with my fire steel - That works, this waste of money does not!

Don't waste your money. The description states an 80% resin content. I ordered two, and the resin content was closer to 20%...at best! This is NOT fatwood!

But this is ridiculous. Spend a little more, get 10 times the fatwoood, and drill the stick yourself.

I use fatwood as a secondary tinder. Especially if you're using a ferro rod, there are much better tinders to get a flame. Fatwood takes a substantial pile of VERY fine scrapings to get ignited. If you're trying to light a fire with a match or open flame, Fatwood is outstanding. It catches quickly, burns hot and long, and is unaffected by moisture. If you're looking for a tinder to pair with a ferro rod, there is nothing better than cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly.
I carry a drilled ferro rod on my keychain with a striker and small aluminum capsule filled with PJ cotton. Hasn't failed me yet. ALSO, TSA doesn't give it a second look.

Pure crap! You could buy a 4lbs bag of this stuff at Home Depot for the same price and it would have so much resin in it. If you are going to sell this individually, have the decency to pick a piece of wood that has a decent amount of resin in it. The piece I got has no resin in it whatsoever and is useless! Don't waste your money, period!

No way! I purchased a bundle of Fatwood online and it was the real McCoy.And it costed maybe $25 for the whole box.I keep several in my rucksack to have on hand,great for getting a fire started when wood is damp after a snowfall or rain.It definitely works even when wet.So I took one stick,drilled a whole threw it so I could loop a short length of paracord through it to cut shavings onto a wad of cotton moisturized with Vaseline.The cotton burns long enough to ignite the shavings,then the shavings will ignite tinder.

Tried using this on a trip in the BWCA and did not have success at all with the product. The conditions were wet and chilly. I can not say exactly what the temps were but a fire was definitely nice to have and too bad the product did not help at all. Save your money and use the resources around you. The LMF Firesteel on the other hand, did work just fine.

It is a very nice added tool, but I would not rely on this as my primary tinder. The stick seems to be a bit fragile and not as "oily" as I expected. That said, if you get enough of the wood scrapped, then you can start a fire. Good piece of kit, if you have the bit of money and space in your pack.

I got this to try out with my Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife Fixed Blade Knife with 10 cm (3 Inch) and works great as a tinder.

I thought it would be handy to have in my go bag. Scraps off easy, lights easy.

Just another back up type tinder to have along in my fire starter kit.
