Functional Lighter Cufflinks

By: on February 09, 2013

How boss will I be when people see me light a stogie with my cufflinks? Never mind that the awe and admiration will be fleeting once my shirt sleeve and, shortly thereafter, entire person also erupts into flame*. A few James Bond moments will make spending the rest of my life as a walking mass of scar tissue totally worth it. And for the suave Targaryen types out there able to manipulate and keep fire in check better than I, the functional lighter cufflinks may enhance your James Bond escapades indefinitely.

YOUgNeek's wrist gadgets come in both hand-wrapped leather and chrome plated versions. The lighters are 7/8" x 3/4" replicas of the vintage gumball-style versions popular during the Mad Men era. Lighting requires a steady hand and finesse, with one finger applying a sideways swipe action until the flame bursts. Hm, now that is interesting. I swear I've heard the exact same thing before from my ex-girlfriend, but in a different context that I can't for the life of me remember right now....

*YOUgNeek acknowledges their lighter cufflinks' precarious nature. Purchase of the set carries extensive safety precautions, included usage instructions, plus a prerequisite that buyers read a Warning Document and accept its terms prior to purchase.
