Trivial Pursuit - Strike-Anywhere Matches

Here's a somewhat trivial question, but totally serious:
Where can one still buy Strike-Anywhere Matches? I recently tried WALMART
and Kroger's and only found Stike-On-BOX matches. It seems to be increasingly
harder to find them. I've tried cutting out the stiking surface from the box
and putting it in my match container, but it ends up getting lost or wet.
My backup is a disposable butane lighter, but I prefer to light lanterns and
gas stoves with matches.
I probably look silly lighting matches with my lighter, but it works.
