The Pitch can is an item used in The Firemaker's Curse. It can be used to create fires without needing to use logs, granting 2 experience points for each fire made. The fires cannot be walked over or stood on, and you can stamp out the red fires whenever you want by clicking on it to stamp it out. The default colour of the fires created by the Pitch is red, but using Yellow powder or Blue powder you can change this to yellow or blue respectively. After that, using Red powder the colour will be reverted to red again. The pitch can will be removed from the inventory if the player leaves Char's training cave.

During the quest, you can receive another one from Flint.
If Flint is killed by Twig or after the quest is completed, the pitch can will simply appear on the floor for the player to collect.
