Sharpie Survival Torch

Intro: Sharpie Survival Torch

Quick, sustainable flame from a Sharpie Marker

Step 1: Get a Sharpie Permanent Marker

I forgot to put this back in the office at work and while I was outside smoking, (yeah, I know I shouldn't smoke) I felt it inside my pocket

Step 2: Fire It Up

Apply a flame such as a lighter or a match as BAM!!! Sustainable, reusable, portable flame!!! have no idea how long it burns yet but I'm gonna do some more testing....

Step 3: Blow It Out and Cap It Off

When finished starting a fire or doing whatever your gonna do with it, simply blow it out and cap it off!!! Ready for use again!!

    What? Who knew!

    Did the marker keep working like normal after being lit? I'm curious if the felt fused together or anything weird like that.

    it did start to burn into the plastic a little, but blowing it out and letting it cool a bit I was able to put the lid right back on
