Frequently Asked Questions
PA4500 Flax "Tow" $6.95

“Tow” is a fiber of the flax plant stem. It is the weight of cotton, but has longer, stiffer fibers. Can be reused. In the early days of muzzleloading guns, “tow” was wrapped around the ramrod’s jag and used for cleaning the bore. Cased sets of antique rifles and pistols are included a hank of “tow”. Today, “tow” should be used with caution in cleaning the bore of muzzleloaders. Bits and pieces could break off, remain the breech and become a smoldering hazard with the firearm’s next shot. “Tow” is easily combustible and is recommended for tinder in starting fires with flint and steel. Light brown in color. 3 oz. bundle.
