Here's an elegant way to store matches near your fireplace or woodstove, on your coffee table or dining table. We gather these granite stones on the ocean beaches of New England. Back in the workshop, we drill a hole in each one with an eye to good design, so you can store a dozen or so matches and strike them on the stone itself.
Matches are not included (because we can't ship in the mail). Be sure to get the large wooden "Strike Anywhere" kind of matches if you plan to use the rock as a striker. Before shipping we test each and every stone to make sure that you can light 'Strike Anywhere' matches on it.
You can buy Diamond or UCO brand Strike Anywhere matches just about everywhere including Amazon, eBay, most hardware stores and stores selling camping supplies.
