Picture of Fire Straws
These are fire straws made for emergency/survival situations. They are waterproof and are small. They are plastic straws that are filled with petroleum jelly impregnated cotton. They are hand made. I substitute some of my living making and selling these to boys scout troops and other survival minded people.
