I may have, in the past, at some point intimated that Diamond brand matches are the worst pipe lighting matches in the world. Vastly inferior to my favorite old Ohio Blue Tips--which by the way I heard that they have disappeared because they were bought by Diamond...
Anyway, I would like to retract that statement. Penley brand matches are the worst **** pipe lighting matches in the world. I am about 3/4 through a box of 250 Penley kitchen matches and I have already had THREE matches break in half and fly flaring onto my shirt.
I think these are some matches that my wife got at Dollar General. I gotta st0p and get some more Diamond matches tomorrow before I catch myself on fire with these **** things. Penleys are made in India, according to the box label. I think Diamonds are still made in the U.S.
I wish I could still get Ohio Blue Tips, though.
