Charcloth is a traditional fire-starting material that has been utilized for centuries. The charred cotton cloth can catch a single small spark from a flint, ferro rod, fire piston, or magnifying glass and turns into a slow-burning, extremely hot fuel that can ignite heavier tinder such as dry pine needles, birch bark, lint, cotton balls, toilet paper, fatwood, shaved magnesium, etc. Once the charcloth has an ember burning, the cloth can be placed inside, or wrapped with you tinder materials and then gently blown on to until it ignites.  Our high quality BushKraft™ cloth starts out as heavy 12 ounce, 100% cotton duck material and is then charred in mini rolls. Each package includes four 2" wide x 18" long rolled sections of charred cloth (144 square inches in total). Just cut off what you need and get to work. Generally the included material should be enough to start around 70 fires. The kit comes packed in a small metal "tinder box" that can be used for storage as well as to easily make more charcloth yourself in the future! We even throw in a rubber "Ranger Band" to keep the tin securely closed while packed away.

We stand by all of our products with a no-hassle guarantee; if you're not satisfied for any reason we'll make it right.
