The history of lighters condenses a history of the development of human civilization. Because fire played a decisive role in the early civilization of mankind, and mankind's understanding of fire has also experienced a process from fear to utilization.

Someone once joked that the lighter was probably invented for smoking because the frequency of smoking is too high.
With the friction between the gears and the flint and the clear and pleasant sound of the lighter cover being opened, the lighter ignited the tobacco while its brilliant sparks also ignited the smoker's soul. Today's smokers, from the practical aspect, are increasingly inseparable from the lighter; from the perspective of collection, the lighter has become a favorite of men. Today's lighter production has developed from a single practical product to a handicraft, which has a high appreciation and collection value. The shape design of the lighter incorporates modern technology, high-end elegance and extraordinary tolerance. In the floating clouds, the lighter will shine more uniquely.

Desktop lighters are usually placed in homes or offices because of their large size and heavy weight. Most of these lighters are equipped with lighter bases with beautiful appearance and high-grade materials.
There are a wide variety of craft lighters, with peculiar shapes and dazzling arrays. Some look like household appliances, sporting goods, living utensils, birds and beasts, and some look like airplanes, artillery, ships, submarines, and rocket ships. If the collection is complete, it can almost become a museum of many kinds of physical objects.
