Cult objects

Over time, the S.T.Dupont lighter, the emblematic product of the famous house, has become a cult object passed down from generation to generation.

In 1941, S.T.Dupont created the first luxury lighter. Practical and sophisticated, it was also synonymous with elegance thanks to its pure lines, its fine materials and its reassuring, satisfying weight.
From the body to the tank, S.T.Dupont lighters are fashioned entirely from a block of solid brass resulting in a hard-wearing object that can withstand the test of time. S.T.Dupont lighters are technically advanced products ensuring maximum reliability: the production of a single lighter requires no fewer than 70 components, 600 operations, and 300 quality control tests. Production time for a lighter is 4 to 5 months.

The lighter has become an S.T.Dupont icon.

This precious object is adorned with silver, gold, palladium or lacquer. Now a genuine cult item, it has gained some of the immortality that belongs only to a certain Art: The Art of Fire.

Innovation and elegance

In its constant quest for innovation, S.T.Dupont launched a new line of torch flame lighters in 2000; light and ergonomic, with a decidedly modern design ensuring efficient lighting in all circumstances.
So as to better meet the expectations of discerning cigar smokers, S.T.Dupont created the torch lighter in the same body as traditional lighter.
An S.T. Dupont lighter starts life as a piece of brass, a small piece of solid metal made of a copper and zinc alloy. It goes through a series of processes to become the final product we know. After extrusion, brazing and machining, the body of the lighter and the top are assembled to form the base for the decoration stage in order to ensure a perfectly regular appearance of the product. The work of the master goldsmith can start. The concern for perfection and the production process guarantee the superior quality of an S.T. Dupont product. Only Line 2 and Gatsby lighters have a different sound due to the composition and assembly of their different pieces.
The S.T.Dupont lighter is excellence without equal, with its famous 'cling' when opened that's instantly recognized only by those acquainted with such pieces.
Its harmonious proportions make it the most universal S.T.Dupont product of all.
