Why use a boring old cheap lighter when you can strike up a flame in style with these awesome matchbox covers!
If you like to be old school (or you just like the superior performance of a wood match) these matchboxes are for you. Why not add style and substance to those tacky cardboard match boxes. These exactly fit a standard 32ct matchbox, leaving the strike area open for easy match-lighting.
Why would I want to use wood matches? I'm glad you asked. Wood matches are just plain superior to lighters for many activities, including:
- Lighting Candles
- Lighting Incense
- Lighting Smudge-wands
- Starting Fireplace kindling
- Every day coolness
- Lighting Cigars
- Lighting Gas-stove-top burners or pilot lights
- Lighting certain recreational substances that are legal in some states (I'm looking at you Colorado)
- And many more...
My matchbox cover is made of heavy 20-gauge Stainless Steel, with a striking fine pewter emblem.
REFILLABLE: HOLDS A STANDARD BOX OF MATCHES, WITH STYLE!
I engineered these Match Box Covers to fit a standard 32 count box of matches, so that you can buy replacement matches at any grocery store or convenience store. I use diamond strike anywhere matches and they work great!
How to refill the matches: When you are done with one cardboard box of matches, just slide the entire cardboard box (including the sleeve with the strike area) out of the metal cover, and insert your new box of matches. Done and ready to go!
ABOUT THE DESIGN
Celtic knotwork patterns have been used for centuries as symbols of connection, protection, and good luck. And, let’s be honest, because they look awesome.
I made this bear because I've always liked bears and what they represent, but I had a hard time finding one that was neither too cute nor too ferocious. They symbolize strength, compassion, courage, and wisdom, but can also be very powerful when pushed too far. This is my second design iteration of the bear. My first attempt didn't capture the quiet strength of the bear. This design captures a good balance: looking friendly and open, and also showing the underlying strength of the bear.
All CelticKnotWorks pieces are proudly handcrafted in the USA. This is my original design, designed from scratch by me. I make these matchbox covers in partnership with my family business, Deva Designs.
*I can't include the matches themselves, to comply with U.S. shipping regulations. My Match Boxes fit the standard small pocket-sized box of matches, that you can find in any grocery store and convenience store.
