Our Slow Match is made from 100% cotton rope soaked in a special blend of natural additives to ensure slow steady burning of match in wind or even light rain. This Slow Match comes with a Brass Suffer.
The Snuffer allows you to easily snuff your match by pulling the rope into the snuffer and placing a finger on the end smothering the ember. This effectively creates char for your next lighting attempt and protects the char from damage in your fire kit.
To use simply extend the match a 1/4” out of snuffer and hold against your flint as you would with a piece of char cloth. Strike flint with steel directing sparks onto the match. Match will catch the spark and turn to ember. Use to ignite tinder bundles or brimstone matches. Snuff ember leaving match ready for next use.

This thing is exactly what I’ve been looking for it combines char-cloth and the ability to get your spark going out of the wind and then move it to where you fire is located. Easy to use and doesn’t take up much space.

Another great product from Blackthorn. I’ve used it for showing the kids how to build a fire and also as a punk of July 4th.

I bought this slow match a while ago and it was the first time I had the opportunity to purchase a true, treated slow match. Easy to prepare (you have to char the end first) and once prepared the Slow Match with Snuffer took a spark from flint and steel easily and smoldered well, exactly as advertised.
I am yet to test in inclement weather but I am sure it would preform well.
Excellent product, highly recommended.
Well made and easy to use.
I will be buying more of these in the future.
