Fatwood comes from pine tree stumps that contain a large amount of resin. It lights quickly, burns hot, and is wind and moisture tolerant. EXOTAC fatwood is 100% natural and grown in Georgia, USA. It is recovered from the lumber industry as waste and repurposed as the tinderTIN fire-starting materials.
The fatwood shavings can be easily lit with an open flame or with a little practice, a ferro rod.
