Jute Fatwood Lanyard: Large 2" ferro rod, adhesive tinder, and high resin lighter wood.
JUTE FATWOOOD LANYARD (simple jute twine necklace with fatwood pendant, ferro rod, and adhesive tinder tape)
We kept this survival necklace simple. A highly fibrous jute twine serves as the lanyard and doubles as tinder. Attached to the jute is a piece of pine Fatwood, tinder tape, and tucked away under the tape is a large 2" ferro rod.
1. Jute String/Tinder, 2-3 feet of 3 ply small rope, use as wound dressing for absorbent properties, tie down, fire tinder. Highly fibrous, stringy, largbe surface area, catches a spark easily. 2. Fatwood Pendant: Pinewood retrieved from high resin/sap from the heartwood of the stump. The wood chunk is rich in terpenes and saturated with the pitch which makes it both highly flammable and nearly water and rot proof. The natural amber hardness allows for small shavings to be chipped off to conserve the pendant for making many fires. Use the savings as tinder or the entire chunk as kindling. Our fatwood is harvested by hand and not bought online or in some outdoor store. Each pendant is pre-drilled to thread cord thru. Sizes vary from min of 1/4" x 1.5" to max of 1" x 3". 3. Fire Starter Ferrocerium Rod: Large 2" firestarter TIPS: Start a fire, Scrape slowly to shave off black covering before use, Strike quickly to ignite tinder, Reflect on sparks into nest of fine tinder, Provide oxygen flow by blowing into the base of flame. 4. Tinder Tape Strap: Heavy duty adhesive Duct Tape with added flammable strands and unique chemical make up of adhesive property allowing a slow tar like burn. Stick to your kindling and ignite or wrap around a limb to use as a torch. 5. Luminous Cord Closure: easily snaps onto ends of cord and attaches to lanyard, install or remove more quickly than tying a knot. High glow output, simply charge under light and closure will provide soft glow for operations in low-lit conditions.
Note: This lanyard provides tinder and a ferro rod. A sharp object or a blade will be need to scrape the ferro to create sparks for a fire.
