10 comments on “AN EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: Product Review: Waxed Cotton Fire Starters

  1. Very cool. I make a product similar to this at home, melting small amounts of paraffin wax and IMMERSING cotton sash cord (window curtain cordage) in the container. Allow a minute or so to become fully impregnated. Pull out with tool (HOT Stuff – use care!) and hang to allow to cool for a few minutes. Cut to shape – approximately 25 will fill a 35mm fllm container.

    Not my idea – I read this in one of Len McDougall’s books and it works well. Thank you for your review.

  2. Those who have bought from reading here said they wished the listing had the ones with jute in them. If you put in the notes or send an email you found them here Ill mix and match what you want at no additional cost. This is a thank you for supporting this site. Halfpint45

  3. I am wondering; 1) if anyone has successfully/knows trick to ignite with fire steel and 2) have a similar video of same. BTW, halfpint48, I am a confirmd eBay purchase reviewer 😉 and suggest you put a video in your eBay listing showing how to ignite with fire steel.

  4. John was great to work with and FAST! I’d asked him to split the order 50/50 between jute & non-jute, as I was going to split between a couple kits. Before I could answer him that I had other strikers, he tossed in an extra striker anyway. Fine product & great service.

  5. Sorry for the slow reply but you cant control your day on a farm.
    Ref “Donk” request on a YouTube video. A buyer has a review on these. Please check it out.

    Thanks to all for supporting this blog and for your orders. I will be glad to help in any way
    Stay Safe John (halfpint45)
