Fuzz sticks

Recommended Posts




I agree --- the idea of beating fuzz sticks sounds like an interesting idea to try. Presumably it breaks up the fibers of the wood and makes it still easier to light.


Never heard of that one before!

Have done it both ways, last time 81 or so, fuzz stick would not take spark so I beat it with a rock, it got the idea, then held the spark/fire. Usually by the time you make a fuzz stick you could have used powers of observation and found enough good tinder and have your fire started. Besides I carry a good birds nest tender bag in my pack.


Be Prepared.
