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.
The Celtic Owl was a request from several different people, and I was immediately intrigued by the idea. The features of an owl are very distinct. Owls are a wonderful contradiction of being round and soft at the same time as being one of the greatest nighttime hunters around. In my owl design, I’ve worked sharp angles into the rounded exterior to represent this contrast. The owl came together very quickly as if it was waiting to be. The Celtic Owl is a symbol of swiftness and clear vision.
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.
