I twisted up some jute / hemp type cordage. Then I worked it back and forth on some beeswax. Finally I inserted it into an aluminum tube. To use it you push up a little of the wick and fluff it out the fibers, set it alight with you ignition method of choice. It works with a lighter, a ferro rod, etc. Use the wick match to light whatever needs lighting and pull the wick back into the tube and out it goes. :)

You know I saw a telescoping tube like that the other day, was attached to a fly swat at a box store. I need to go back by there and take a closer look at it :)
