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
  • Weddings
  • Rituals
  • Ceremonies
  • 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.

  • Handcrafted inUSA.
  • Approximately 1.5”x2”.
  • Refillable: Fits a standard box of matches* 
  • The back is perfect for engraving!

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.

The butterfly was a request for a request for a wedding, so how could I resist! When I created this design, I incorporated the majestic beauty of the butterfly with the whimsy of their flight patterns. It also forced me to modify my typical style; this is the first time I varied the line thicknesses within the design. The varying lines help capture the complexity of the butterfly, without over-cluttering the design. The Butterfly is a symbol of beauty and understanding. And it is true: When you understand the nature of something, it is very easy to see its beauty!

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.
