All natural, handmade Birch Roll Firestarters that can alternately be used as beautiful pieces of home decor. These firestarter rolls are easy to pack and carry for a camping excursion, would make great gifts for the outdoors man, or look beautiful in a basket beside your fireplace!
Each firestarter is carefully handcrafted and created from a bundle of assorted twigs tied with jute twine and then wrapped with a piece of salvaged White or Yellow Birch bark. Hemp is then wound around the bundle to hold the firestarter securely together. The end of the twig bundles are dipped in a complex variety of natural resins that dry shiny and hard and help waterproof the wood. This combination of salvaged birch bark and natural resin combines to create a quick-catching fire propellant. Because of the waterproofing resin, RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters can even be lit when damp, making them perfect for lighting fires in your fireplace and woodstove, or outdoor fire pits.
RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters are virtually waterproof and have an indefinite shelf life. Burn time is approximately 15 minutes per firestarter. Flashpoint is at least 700 degrees. RussTick Natural Woods® does not use any artificial sealants, glues, or finishes in production of these pieces…only natural and local hand-picked materials. RussTick Natural Woods® firestarters are ALL natural and environmentally friendly. There are no harsh odors, unnatural chemicals, or airborne toxins…only safe, clean, breathable air.
