Here in Utah, I can still find strike-anywhere matches by Diamond. I bought three boxes (750 total) about a year ago in a grocery store. They're still sealed in their plastic wrapping.
Of some concern is a notice on the box, "New Look! - Same Great Product!"
I just hope they still work as well as the old strike-anywhere matches I grew up with.
As a kid, I learned to strike such matches on my trouser zipper, if I couldn't find any other dry, rough surface. I wonder how many kids today would think to do that in an emergency?
I grew up with strike-anywhere matches: camping with the family, starting a fire in the Franklin Stove to heat the house, spending summers at the cabin in Canada that had a combination wood and propane-burning stove.
Today, I carry a small butane lighter in my pocket, though I don't smoke, because I believe in being prepared.
The ability to produce a flame for warmth, signalling, light or as a weapon can save your life, and the lives of others. People have died for the lack of a book of matches, or a 39-cent butane lighter.
Life is cheap. Saving it can be cheap too.
