Posted:With my fire swords I have used a crepe bandage/denim for the wicks and this appears to work fairly well except for the fact that they do need replacement quite regularly.

Woody has also used this method to make some fire rope from his chains to quite good effect.

Posted:Mark, did you just put some denim under your kevlar? i've been considering doing that with some fireheads, just a thicker-layered variation on the "hybrid" idea, and if the denim's not right under the top layer, especially (or did you put it there too?) i imagine it won't degrade so fast inside the bundle...?

molten cheers,
