Kiribi Tsuchime Silver Lighter
Kiribi Kabuto Tsuchime Silver Pipe Lighter
Along with the katana, the kabuto (winged battle helm) boasts an integral association with the pre-Meiji Restoration samurai class. While the inspiration for the Kiribi shapes all hail directly from the zenith of Art Deco, the Kabuto also incorporates an homage to this tradition within the gesture of the wing-like cap toggle — a direct reference to the fukigaeshi (crescent like wings on the side of the kabuto)
Though distinctly retro-chic on the outside, this Kabuto lighter boasts a state-of-the-art modernist design, technology, and cutting-edge innovations within. It features:
- angled flame design that offers a convenient and more gentle light for your pipe
- hinge spring made of a special polymer that is far more resilient to fatigue than steel
- single tank construction with impressive fuel capacity
- 100% hand assembled in Japan
- sturdy brass, steel, and nickel construction
It's presented here in the Tsuchime Silver finish. A traditional artisanal technique, Tsuchime or "hammered" finishes were commonly used to elevate the presentations of traditional Japanese kiserus and cigarette cases years ago. Tsuchime finishes are created by hammering metal sheets one pattern at a time, producing unique textures depending on the size, depth, or pitch of the hammered pattern.
