I love matches. Don’t worry, I am not a pyro or anything, but I just love using old school wooden matches to light candles and fires. I just love the sound of a match striking and the initial smell of the wood burning. I am always on the lookout for new and different matches and I think I hit the jackpot with this really cool Wooden Matches Block from FitzSu.
About the Wooden Matches Block from FitzSu: “Wooden Block with 100 matches is created out of one piece of wood. To use, just break a match off the block and scratch it along the block to light. In 1680, an Irish physicist named Robert Boyle (Boyle’s Law) coated a small piece of paper with phosphorous and coated a small piece of wood with sulfur. He then rubbed the wood across the paper and created a fire. However, there was no useable match created by Robert Boyle. A great hostess gift, corporate gift or volume gift, the block of 100 matches comes in a gift box.”
I love this simple idea of a block of matches – almost a reinvention of the whole idea of wooden matches. I love the look of this block too – almost too good to use. The Wooden Matches Block will look great sitting on the mantel on its own and makes a nice gift.
