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.
It was my friend Michelle (hi Michelle!) who requested a turtle design. As soon as she mentioned it, I had a clear concept of a turtle with a shield knot, which symbolizes protection, over the shell. While creating this design, the important lesson I learned was that turtle was not going to be rushed. What I thought was going to be a simple knot ended up being very complex and took me several iterations and many weeks to get right. The Turtle is a symbol of grounding and safety.
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.
I gave the turtle matchbox to a dear friend to honor her pet Cecil. She is a very happy smoker now. I have two box covers myself and gifted not one, but TWO of the raven designed. Excellent quality and attention to detail, and unique! Definitely a hit.
