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:
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.
This is my take on the shield knot. It has a long history and has been used by many cultures, including Celtic and Viking, as a symbol of protection. It is known by many names including the Quaternary knot, shield knot, four corners knot, or four-way knot. It is a bold design and stands out from a distance.
All CelticKnotWorks pieces are proudly handcrafted in the USA. My original designs are either designed from scratch or are my take on classic Celtic elements. 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.
This is exactly what I was looking for to cover the matchbox in our guest bathroom. It is extremely well made and very attractive. Not only that but it is presented in a lovely black pouch and a small gift was included as well. Personal touches always make ordering special.
I'm a pipe smoker who is a purist about using only matches to light my fire. A while ago, I stumbled upon some Victorian matchbox covers, all gorgeous. Many were made out of silver. Of course, as antiques, their prices were much more than reasonable for an item that I wanted to use, not just to collect. So, I searched and found Celtic Knot Works. Functional, gorgeous, with a variety of medallions available, and affordable, Celtic Knot Works matchbox holder was exactly what I was looking for. I enjoy it each time I strike a match. Thank you.
