Permanent match by BUSHMEN. The smart and beautiful combination of the oil lighter, match, and firestarter. It is convenient to use as a match, especially when you have to ignite the campfire, candle, or an oil lamp. Provides a big, bright flame like a good oil lighter. The firestarter at the side of the can takes the role of the waterproof sparker, when there is no oil in the can it’s a good survival source of the fire.
Basic parts of the permanent match are:
The match – build of the steel tube with the small steel striker and the cotton wick on the end. The other side is a handle and closure of the oil can at the same time.
The oil can – is filled with cotton balls. When the can is filled with the oil, cotton balls keeps the oil inside and protects against spill, even when the can would fall.
The match (when closed) is immersed in the oil (in the can) and it’s always ready to use. Just remove the match from the can (with oil) and strike the spark by scratching the firestarter. Oil in the wick will burn with the big, bright flame. Pay attention to burn the oil, not the wick, what may happen when you burn the match too long. When you see that the wick is getting black or glow you should immediately extinguish the flame.
A permanent match is supplied with the small piton, which makes the match a useful keychain.
Remember, from time to time, to fill the can with the oil.
