All of our fire equipment and loose wicks use 100% Para-Aramid fibre.
Generic Para-Aramid is often incorrectly referred to as Kevlar® which was originally created by DuPont in 1965. Only para aramid fibre produce by Dupont can be called Kevlar®. The technical name for Kevlar® is Para-Aramid.
Para-Aramid is a very strong, heat resistant synthetic fibre which is woven into strips and used for all good fire wicks. This is the best known material for fire props and, unlike inferior wicks using glass fibre or even asbestos, it is durable, inert and completely non- toxic in normal use.
Please note: Para-Aramid is heat resistant, not fire proof. To extend the life of your fire wicks we suggest you use only Paraffin. Avoid using alcohol based fuels as these burn at higher temperature and will degrade the wicks faster.

A lot of the cheaper Aramid products on the market have fibreglass mixed in with the kevlar- the fibreglass does not absorb the fuel and tends to turn silver and dry up with time. If this happens, we recommend you replacing your wick with a purer grade of wick.

    Mr Babache Zipp Fire Spitting Stick

    Solidly finished, slender fire spitting stick. With black solid plastic moulded handle, tubular aluminium stick, and narrower wick than the Henrys. The Mr Babache Zipp Lighting Stick is based around the old Mr Babache Performer Diabolo hand stick.The shaft is made from hollow aluminium and features a padded handle and a 50mm long burner. The wick is fastened to the tube with self taping screws. THE SCREW AND THE TUBE WILL GET HOT which is why we recommended this item to advanced fire eaters only. Alternatively, this small torch makes a great lighting stick (as the name suggests) and can be used to ignite other props.

    Size: 45cm long

    Perfect for fire breathing. The metal construction makes this a very durable spitting stick and the screw attachment makes for easy wick changes.

    Fire breathing is the most dangerous of the fire arts. Possible consequences include: Gum damage, diahorrea, pneumonia, cancer, serious burns and even death!.
    We do not recommend anyone attempt fire breathing!
