Match
A MATCH is a tool for starting a fire. Typically, modern matches are made of small wooden sticks or stiff paper . One end is coated with a material that can be ignited by frictional heat generated by striking the match against a suitable surface. Wooden matches are packaged in matchboxes , and paper matches are partially cut into rows and stapled into matchbooks .
