Butane lighters have a tendency to be filled with butane, and that shit is flammable. One misplaced spark could blow off your man or lady parts. Who wants to carry around a potential butane grenade in their trousers? Strike allows you to summon forth a tiny inferno at your command, and eases the worriment that comes with carrying around a gas canister in your pocket. The tiny silver box holds 45 matchsticks and comes with a pack of sticky strike pads for mobile ignition. And the emergency strike pad on the bottom provides a quick pipe tobacco light, for instant smoldering classiness.
