I’m fairly sure we can all agree that matches are a fairly primitive technology. Even if you put them on a wooden block in a fairly attractive positioning, they’re still outdated. Yes, they do have their occasional uses, but not enough to constitute spending $48. Yes that’s right, spend almost $50 on 100 matches. Sure, they made it interesting by making it one solid block of wood. However, they’re still just little sticks of wood that flare up when struck properly.
