Orvis Fatwood

Fatwood fire starter kindling is an easy, eco-friendly way to enjoy a roaring wood fire. - As seen in InStyle Magazine


Cut from the resin-saturated heartwood found in the stumps of ancient longleaf pines, our fatwood burns with a hot, aromatic pine flame that makes it the perfect kindling for wood fires, whether in the woodstove, hearth, or campsite. Choose 15 pounds of fatwood in a reusable burlap sack or a 30-lb. cardboard carton. Introduced in 1970, Orvis fatwood is earth friendly (no living trees are harvested in making it).

    Fatwood is the best Christmas present ever. - 11/16/2015
    By: from Hampshire, England

    All the people I give Fatwood to at Christmas always make little hints - starting about August - that it would be nice to have it again as a present. And I, of course, find it magic for lighting the fire as well. First found it in the USA when it was given to my mother. And then was very pleased when it came to the UK.

    Fantastic - 11/15/2015

    This product makes lighting fires easy! I now have a roaring fire within a couple of minutes where it has always been a chore. Very clean and has a lovely smell. I will definitely continue to buy this product. It's not cheap but I only use a few pieces with each fire and I'm really pleased to have found it. Will buy again.

    Not exactly what I wanted - 11/6/2015
    By: from Orlando, FL

    This was not exactly what I was wanting to give as a gift. I do like the burlap bag. The fatwood looks like a cross between wood chips and the fairly uniform sticks shown in the box. It is acceptable, but not as expected. What I really wanted was a decorative brass urn, but without a designer name on it. That was not available. This will not be returned.

    A great way to start a fire - 10/30/2015
    By: from Guildford, Surrey, UK

    Paper, sticks, smelly fire lighters - things of the past, Orvis Fatwood is clean and an excellent way to start a fire. It burns easily and logs on the fire quickly catch fire. Why did I not find it earlier?

    To start a fire - 10/27/2015

    This product performs exactly as advertised and is a Godsend when there is a shortage of dry kindling wood.

    Makes Building a Fire Easy - 10/22/2015
    By: from Staten Island, NY

    This is the simple way to start a fire and always works the first time. We have tried several other products but this is what one should depend upon -simple and sure fire.

    Easy firefighting using nature - 10/3/2015
    By: from North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom

    Great versatile product. Can use the sticks to start a fire with ease, even in damp conditions. Can grind the sticks up to powder and put in a tin to use out out in the field. Great value from a sustainable source
