Here's nature's perfect 100% natural fire starter, hand-split from the stumps of pine trees. "Fatwood" is a traditional expression used to describe the high concentration of pitch (natural resin) in the wood. This resin allows the Fatwood to be started with a single match and to give a sustained flame. Fatwood is approximately 8" in length and starts fireplaces, barbecues, woodstoves, coal stoves, and campfires with ease. 8 lb. bag, approximately 80 to 120 sticks.
