A rope lighter uses a Flammable cotton rope as a burning substance, and flint as ignition. It is 100% fuel/gas-free. It has been known by other names such as “shepherds’ lighter".
It is windproof (in fact, the bigger the wind, the better it burns), So sailors like to use it to light their pipes when they work in the wind. At the same time, it can work normally under extremely harsh conditions such as the plateau and the battlefield. In World War I, soldiers usually use it to light the cannon.
When using a brand new rope lighter, burn the end of the rope before using it with the flint. The end must be blackened for the spark to catch.
