And if you are down to your last paper match, there’s a neat trick you can do to get two different fires from it – split the match! Tear one free from the book, and gently start to peel the paper in half, starting at the torn end of the match. Make sure the split gives you equal paper on each side. When your split reaches the chemical head, it should pop into two pieces. These “half-matches” only have half the burn time of a regular paper match, but if you strike them carefully, each one will work and be capable of starting dry fluffy tinder ablaze.
