I am very disappointed with the quality of products nowadays. The latest to land on my disapproval list is Swan Vestas matches.
Apart from reducing the sandpaper from both sides of the box to one only, the company has also developed a detachable match head that flies off in preference to actually catching fire.
After trying to light my pipe this evening, here are the remnants of the vestas.
The pipe is still not lit. I will try again with cooks’ matches.
Meanwhile I have five new pieces of 1/300 scale timber. 🙂
And, by the way, nostalgia isn’t as much fun as it used to be.
