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.

          This tinder works as advertised and one cube can be used to start a few fires.

            Can these cubes be put out and then reused?

            • 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.
