You will find some disturbance on the surface of the tallow as the wicks will need to be exposed and trimmed.

  • The tallow candle is not simply a candle but a survival tool.
  • This is not a bog standard candle;
  • it is a handmade made from pure tallow.
  • The Candle and tin Weigh approx. 86g net

Some of the benefits it brings are:

  • Long-lasting use.
  • Used as an aid to fire lighting in holding the flame from a match to save using another.
  • Contained in an air-tight container.
  • Repels water.
  • Take travelling, fishing, camping, or to festivals.
  • Once the tallow has been used up the tin can be re-used.

  • Lubricant for plumbing.
  • Lubricant for electric cables.
  • Lubricant for metal cutting.
  • As a balm.
  • For making a fire lighter.
  • Sharpening by smearing onto a flat surface and sprinkling with sand.
  • Or used with a strickle (easily made square peg of wood smeared with tallow and sprinkled with sand) as was used in agriculture for sharpening in the fields.
  • Pan-frying foods (I cannot be sure that this tallow is safe to eat).
  • Eaten in extreme survival situations (I cannot be sure that this is safe to eat).
  • Tallow is solid fat extracted from the tissues and fatty deposits of animals, especially the fat of cattle and sheep.
  • Pure tallow is white, odourless, and tasteless; it contains mostly triglycerides of stearic, palmitic, and oleic acids.
  • It is usually obtained commercially by heating suet under pressure in closed vessels.
