    It’ll be just fine as long as you got on your knees and said three Jeff Randalls before hand. ...... Seriously though never done waxed canvas. I’m sure it would work great. If you’ve got info on it I’d love to see it.

    Im at work, it's at home, but I'll try to remember to post a picture when I can.

    It really did work well. I used it on a Frost River haversack.

    Glad to hear it. We’ve been debating on doing a B-Fat bar for larger pieces of gear. Like a bar of soap but cooler and more versatile. Might work well for folks that run a canvas tarp.

    Ive melted it into an axes paracord wrap to help with water resistance. Smear it on heavily and hold it over the stove. Never considered anything further. Nice work gentlemen.

    I vote b fat in a small tin. I melted some fixing wax into one of the tins for then small exotac candles. Works great for use and applying. I plan on ordering some B-fat and spices tomorrow when I get paid!

    Well....screwing around....I applied it to my libertariat handles, heated with a lighter, then rubbed like hell.

    I like the feel, and the deepened color.

    I vote for a tin.

    I just ordered my first batch of spices and B-fat... took less than 15 minutes for them to have tracking now that’s impressive! Can’t wait to get in on all the hype!

    2F007C08-1140-44B3-AC9D-9D6E49CE50B7.png I have a team of experts working in our warehouse round the clock shipping orders.


    Kidding. Your timing was impeccable. I had just sat down to my desk to do some morning work when your order came in. Mailman will pick it up this morning.

    My family greatly appreciates the support. Hope you enjoy it.

    Awesome lol I tend to have good timing lol.... I have a scout camp out next weekend I’ll try the seasoning at... if they like it we will order for the troop then I’ll convert other scout masters... give it a few years and you’ll be the official spice of the bsa! Also on the b fat, if you do a tin I really like the dragon fire balm one I can send pics and dimensions if you want

    Cool. Shoot me some pics. We were either gonna do a tin or just a bar, maybe both if there’s a demand for it.

    It’s about 2 1/4” in diameter and about 3/4” thick. Nice screw top, never had it leak or anything this is my second one.
