Lighters: Kiribi Kabuto Short Black Matte

Product Number: 001-068-0200

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 Short sports a state-of-the-art modernist design, technology, and cutting-edge innovations within. It features:

  • compact, convenient size for easy transport
  • 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 Short do some of the talking, others will get the message.

Available in red sateen, modernist black nickel, elegant silver satin, or the understated black matte which is now before you.

I bought this as a backup for an older Kiribi Tomo*. It's smaller size makes it more portable and a weight comparable to a standard Zippo. I like the reliablity, quality construction, and impressive gas capacity. This lighter exudes mechanical qua... Read More

I really like this lighter, Not to expensive lights every time, and I like using flints instead of the quartz lighters.

This lighter is wonderful. The flame is perfect for pipe lighting. It also seems to be very reliable even outside on windy days. I've been using the Zippo flints I had on hand with rather inconsistent results. I have Kiribi flints on order and loo... Read More

Product: Lighters Kiribi Kabuto Short Black Matte
I couldn't choke down nearly double the money for another Old Boy Pewter. With the help of Keith, I landed upon this one and am not sorry I did. It's a fine lighter and I believe it does everything the Old Boy does; and perhaps a bit more. The wing o... Read More
