Norwegian maker benny8025 shows us how to make strike anywhere matches by scraping the phosphorus off of a match box strike zone and affixing the powder to the match heads. The second half of the video tours us through many varied objects on which to strike your new matches. There’s also an Instructable to go with the video. After you make your matches strike-anywhere, go ahead and dip them in wax to make a water-resistant pack of survival matches.
