I’ve read about those, work well?
It works good.
How did you go about making that then buddy?
The brass is a .45-70 case with the base cut off. The rope is 1/2” 100% cotton. Push the rope into the case and burn it to char.
To light it I push the rope out some and lay it on the flint. A couple hits from the fire steel and it usually lights. Then I set the lit ember on the rope I to a tinder bundle. Blow the tinder bundle into flame like normal. To extinguish the rope, I pull it into the case and put my thumb over the tube to cut off the air flow.
The slow match can be used with char cloth too. I think of the slow match as a long burning ember. It’s less finicky.
That is a neat trick. I will have to try it.
I've been mostly using chared natural materials as of late. But never had any issues charging any cloth that was 100percent cotton. As stated already, my tins that aren't air tight don't get a hole.
I made a new batch today,works a treat .
What tin is that? Does that cup come in orange? (Serious inquiry)
Lol BDS ,ask jackal about the mug ;-)
