Kiribi Butane Lighters

Kiribi Lighters

The origins of Kiribi lay in the traditional Japanese practice of casting sparks upon a beloved traveler’s back, in order to impart fortune and ward off evil, blessing them on their journey. The practice hearkens back to the famous 8th century legend of Prince Yamatotakeru, and the aunt who gifted him the firestone and striker which saved his life along perilous travels. In time, the same simple tool kit that was used to perform the original Kiribi came to be used by the countryfolk of Japan to light their pipes; and thus the inspiration for the Kiribi line. All acts in life involve an important first step, and enjoying a bowl from your favorite pipe exceptionally so. Every spark, whether it is struck for a pipe or a cigar, or a chance-met stranger’s cigarette, sets us upon a little journey of our own; and a little extra good fortune can't hurt.
