Piezo-Electric Maruman Lighter

This beautiful vintage Maruman lighter has a classic Mid-Century Regency style with a “futuristic” twist.  Now common technology, this Maruman lighter was the pioneer in the now common flintless electric lighters. It was found unused and complete with the original hardshell case and instruction pamphlet, which was a fascinating read. The information / instruction flyer tells the “amazing story” of the Maruman piezo-electric lighter…its space age indestructible crystals (normally used in sonar equipment) and microphones transform the striking effect of sound waves into an electric charge, igniting the butane. I bet you never knew your cheap gas station electric click lighter was so high-tech, did you? This particular Maruman lighter measures 1 5/8 inches x 1 5/8 inches x 1/2 inch and has beautiful chrome exterior. We tested it (as we do with absolutely everything) with a tiny amount of butane, and after many decades of non-use, it was in perfect working condition. It was obviously in beautiful shape, too, with absolutely no scratches, scuffs, discoloration or any other damage whatsoever. It was a popular item and sold its first week at auction at an affordable price.  No wonder…the Maruman vintage lighter is truly a useful work of art. eBay is the best place to find the perfect Maruman vintage lighter to add to your collection.

Thoughts on Vintage Lighters by my brother-in-law Voter Joe!

When you pull a vintage lighter out of your pocket, you can cause a spark...in conversation!  Vintage lighters are the ultimate in conversation pieces.  If you are a smoker, a vintage Maruman lighter is a great gift for yourself because of the quality and lasting nature of it.  This is no boring Zippo. Not to knock Zippos...they are a true American classic, and I respect them.  However, if you are looking for something a little different...this is a Maruman retro lighter.  It has modern style in a vintage lighter, and it really has a classy look!  Vintage lighters have seen everything from the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.  Don't use some cheap gas station lighter when you can buy a quality retro lighter that you will never need to replace. Be kind to the Earth, buy a vintage Maruman lighter you can refill over and over!
