Celebrated in Haiku by the likes of Yosa Buson and Basho, Mikazuki is Japanese for "waxing crescent moon", and that ephemeral beauty is elegantly captured within chrome finish contours of the base and ignition platform. The dapper exterior design hails from the apex of the Art Deco movement, the roaring 20s, as does the signature Mikazuki arches. Under all of this retro style, you will find manifold modern innovations: a single tank construction which boasts an enormous fuel capacity, as well as a cutting-edge, dual flame design which boasts the binary benefits of covering a wider surface, while being gentler to your pipe.
Any treasure, if destined to become part of our daily lives, must be as reliable as it will later become familiar. All Kiribi lighters are 100% hand assembled in Japan, and feature nickel, steel, and brass serving in all the essential parts, save a special polymer spring (200% more resistant to fatigue than steel) reserved for the opening/closing mechanism. The Mikasuki is available in either elegant black matte, or the red sateen that is now before you.
