The ability to create fire on a moment's notice makes a well-crafted lighter the perfect every day carry.  And few butane lighters can rival that of the Kiribi line of lighters. 

Kiribi's Kenshi, meaning "sword wielder," is an angled pipe lighter with double flame for softer, wider pipe lighting in a sophisticated art deco style. The Kenshi is a horizontally smaller model than Kiribi's other pipe lighter offerings, for even easier pocket carry and convenience.

While branded Kiribi, Tsubota Pearl is the manufactures behind this line and therefore, this lighter could be considered the butane sister of the very popular Brass Bolbo Petrol Lighter.

Please note:

  • Butane lighters require the lighter to be filled a specific way in order to function properly. Please follow the operating instructions exactly. 
  • Use high quality, ultra refined butane fuel like Xikar or Newport Zero. This will increase the lifespan of the lighter and make for a smoother lighting experience.

About Kiribi

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.
