Lighters: Kiribi Kabuto Black Nickel

Product Number: 001-068-0196

Along with the katana, the kabuto (winged battle helm) boasts an integral association with the pre-Meiji Restoration samurai class. While the inspiration for the Kiribi shapes all hail directly from the zenith of Art Deco, the Kabuto also incorporates an homage to this tradition within the gesture of the wing-like cap toggle — a direct reference to the fukigaeshi (crescent like wings on the side of the kabuto)

Though distinctly retro-chic on the outside, your new Kabuto sports a state-of-the-art modernist design, technology, and cutting-edge innovations within. It features:

  • new dual flame design that offers a wider and more gentle light for your pipe
  • hinge spring made of a special polymer that is far more resilient to fatigue than steel
  • single tank construction of amazing fuel capacity
  • 100% hand assembled in Japan
  • sturdy brass, steel, and nickel construction

Your lighter, like your choice of cufflinks or writing pen, communicates much about your discerning tastes to others. Let your new Karibi Kabuto do some of the talking, others will get the message.

The Kiribi Kabuto is available in red sateen, understated black matte, sophisticated silver satin, or the modernist black nickel before you.

Product: Lighters Kiribi Kabuto Black Nickel
This is a really nice lighter. Has a good heft to it, solid build, holds plenty of butane and lights every time. Only complaint is it's really built for a left handed person, but I have figured out how to light it without burning all the hair off my ... Read More

After having it for a year, this has become my favorite lighter. I've got an Old Boy and a number of other pipe lighters, but for years I'd been a kitchen match kinda' guy… until I bought one of these. While I still light up with wooden kitchen match... Read More

Product: Lighters Kiribi Kabuto Black Nickel
I picked this over the Corona Old Boy because of the price; this is my first butane pipe lighter (I used to use a zippo pipe lighter). This is great! None of the harsh chemical flavor you get with the zippo, easy to control the flame, and works like ... Read More

Product: Lighters Kiribi Kabuto Black Nickel
I received the lighter yesterday and I was quite impressed by the packaging, heft and quality of the workmanship. Flame control can range from almost nothing to a very long soft flame. The flame control is also easy to adjust by using a thumbnail and... Read More
