Imagine if your disposable lighter also came equipped with scissors, a knife, a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips head screwdriver/poker, a key chain and a bottle opener. You’d want to show it off, right? In fact, you might even be tempted to say, “Hey, look at my lighter, bro!”
This month’s gadget combines a stainless steel lighter sleeve with a multi-tool, and is indeed called the Lighter Bro. According to the company’s website, this handy hybrid was the brainchild of Kyber Logue, an avid sailor and adventurer who shared his vision with former roommate Matt Dubberley, an engineer and rock climber. The two men perfected the design together and debuted the Lighter Bro in 2013 with the intention of making everyone’s life lighter, easier and more fun.
While perfectly suited for use by cannabis aficionados, the tools are also great for snipping fishing line, cutting fruit and vegetables, bait rigging, poking holes in skateboard grip tape and other tasks. The lightweight design makes it ideal for hikers and the stainless steel case can even be used as a reflective device to signal rescue planes if your outdoor adventures go awry. The keyring can be hooked to a carabiner and clipped to a backpack for easier access.
The Lighter Bro is available in a variety of colors and decorative finishes and can be ordered online at lighterbro.com. Prices range from $14.99 to $24.99. A compact pocket clip accessory which also doubles as a money clip can be added for an additional $3.50.
