Product Description
Born from the need for a safe and easy-to-use lighting material for the military, WetFire Tinder Cubes are hands-down the best fire-starting material around. Individually-wrapped solid cube fire starters burn at over 1300° F, yet cool nearly instantly when snuffed out. Excellent for fire starting in any weather and at any altitude. Remarkable cubes burn longer when wet and even burn while floating in water. Eight individually wrapped 0.2-oz. cubes per pack.

    Comments about Ultimate Survival WetFire Tinder Cubes:

    Used one of these and the UST Sparkie firestarter (also recommended) to light a fire. Be sure you create a small pile of shavings and don't light the cube directly.

    Cube caught flame from the sparks quickly and lasted for a long time even when faced with wind. Very light, so it's a must for those looking to save weight in packing.

        • A:

          Yes
          It cools down as soon as you out it out. put it in a small ziplock bag and use it later.
          the trick is to scrape a small amount off the small block and start that on fire, and put the rest back into the ziplock bag.

        • A:

          Yeah they can be extinguished and stored for later use. I usually shave a little off the cube with my pocket knife into a little pile under the teepee set-up of sticks I use to build my fire, then place the remainder of the cube back in my tinder kit. It lights fairly easily with my blastmatch to, unlike some other pre-made tinder products whcih are a pain in the butt to light with a flint & steel/blastmatch/magnesium block. The wetfire cubes are easily the best ready-to-use tinder products I have ever come across, I make sure to put a few in each of my "emergency kits", and the ones I give my family & close friends every Christmas.
