Fatwood is natures natural tinder.
The aromatic resins that saturate fatwood are very fammable and at the same time keep your slab of fatwood dry from the elements. Many survival experts and experience outdoorsmen carry a couple pieces of good fatwood wherever they go to ensure they always have viable tinder with which to start a fire no matter what the conditions.

Unlike the dry inferior fatwood sticks sold elsewhere, our fatwood is full of juicy resin and does not come from South American rain forests where fragile ecosystems are often destroyed for mere profit.
