Actually, you’re on your own with the powder, but the MatchSafe will keep your emergency supply of matches dry and ready. This little stainless box, made by Stoll in Germany, is much more durable than a match book and keeps your safety matches dry and ready until you need them. There’s a piece of sandpaper mounted inside for striking the matches. Exterior black leather accents have been heat-bound to the metal for a tighter bond than you can get with glue or staples. It measures 2.6” X 1.76” X 0.6”, so it’s small enough to keep in your pocket or throw in your EDC bag. It’s $40 from the CooperHewitt Shop.
