strike anywhere matches

I bought 2 boxes of strike anywhere matches at Cabela's. I haven't seen these on the shelves for years.

Here in Western PA most of the small local hardware stores carry them. I have also seen them in many of the small stores at campgrounds, or near State Parks.

Re: strike anywhere matches

if your using them for a survival kit. Melt wax around the tips in case they get wet. It protects them.

Yep, then just carefully scrape off the wax before striking of course.

Re: strike anywhere matches

Most stores don't carry them because they can ignite in the box when shipped or dropped due to bouncing around and cause a fire.

Pick up a metal match and you'll never go wrong. Won't have to worry if it get's wet. Walmart sells them cheap.
