Just in Case

These matches were purchased for emergency purposes and have been stored accordingly. I did not test the matches, as they are few in number and are for emergencies. However, as I write this, I decided I should test one. I will be right back.Okay, they are easy to light and have a mid size flame. However, the match I lit had approximately a 5 second burn time. I was inside the house out of any sort of inclement weather conditions. If you ignite one in your house, have a wood stove, fireplace, etc.for ventilation. Imagine a book of matches being ignited at once, for comparison of flame size. However a book of paper matches would burn longer, but paper is paper. I would give five stars, but these matches burn down too fast. You better have your fuel source for your fire on the spot, ready to ignite. 99.9% of you know this, but always carry more than one source for fire starting and practice with it before you leave home. Wet, cold, hungry and lost is no time to learn how to use your fire starter(s).
