To divide into four

matches

I wonder if there exists in English a saying “to divide a hair into four”, meaning getting into thiniest details of detail. As to the matches I’ve heard that some longer time ago people were so poor they could’nt afford matches and they were lighting their fires and lamps with mathes divided in four.

But I think that ours have already been divided in four, because it’s absolutely impossible to divide them again, not to mention using afterwards 🙂
