CHOKTAW Waxed Jute Rope Tinder Sticks

Veteran Owned Business

Waxed Jute Rope Tinder

CHOKTAW Rope is the ultimate tinder solution for any emergency where warmth is critical to your survival! Made from the same waxed jute fiber found in SurvivorCord parachute cord, CHOKTAW Rope is wind-resistant, waterproof, and ignites easily even in inclement weather.

To use, simply create a small bird’s nest of CHOKTAW Rope by either shaving a small section off of the end of your tinder or fraying a few strands of the waxed jute. Once you have your tinder pile ready, hit it with a few strikes of your favorite SurvivorSteel ferro-rod, and you’re good to go!

Any of the CHOKTAW Tinder products are perfect additions to your survival kits, emergency kits, bug-out bags, camping gear, or vehicles. With CHOKTAW Tinder, you know you’re always prepared.

  • THE ULTIMATE EMERGENCY TINDER - Starting a fire can be challenging, so we’ve designed CHOKTAW Rope to be easy to light in all weather conditions and highly resistant to water, wind, & weather. Whether you’re lighting your fire with a spark-generating tool like TITAN Survival’s SurvivorSteel Ferro-Rod, or simple matches, lighters, or flint strikers - We’ve got you covered!
  • EASY TO USE - Simply pull the waxed jute strands apart into a small bird’s nest or shave a small section off into a pile with your trusted knife, ignite it, and add kindling. A small pile of frayed CHOKTAW Rope burns for 1-2 minutes, greatly enhancing your fire-building success rates.
  • RELIABLE WARMTH - CHOKTAW Rope is made from the same waxed jute fiber used in patented SurvivorCord, found in U.S. Embassy Survival Kits around the world, and trusted by Veterans and Bushcrafters everywhere. It is wind-resistant, waterproof, and ignites easily even on damp or windy days.
  • DISASTER PREPAREDNESS - Add this jute rope fire-tinder to your emergency preparedness kit and you’ll be ready for any situation. From natural disasters, to power outages, to off-grid survival scenarios, our waterproof tinder just works. Add it to your backpacks, camping gear, bug-out bags, and vehicles so that you’re always prepared.

CHOKTAW Waxed Jute Rope Tinder Sticks

Joseph S. (Memphis, TN)
Excellent idea for tinder/kindling starter

Cut off a short piece, frazzled one end, hit it with a few strikes from a ferry rod and the fire started as easily as that. Great product.

Thanks so much for the great review, Joseph! If you can think of anything to make the tinder better, please let us know. We're always looking for ways to improve our products and service. Stay safe out there! - Jarod

They are all over!!

I have at least 1 each piece in any of my day bags, BoB's, GHB's or INCH bags!!

Thereby assuring that any in contact with my equipment will be able to start a fire in any conditions!

Super packaged Emergency Tinder

First, are five pieces from am ordinary household ball of twine or jute rope. This stuff ‘burns forever’. Next dip them into wax which makes them into waterproof wicks that ‘burn forever’. Then wrap them into five water resistant plastic containers so they don’t unravel. Excellent emergency backup tinder when you don’t have amy. I recommend it.
