Cricket Lighters

More than 50 years ago in 1961, the first Cricket lighter was introduced and launched on the global market. Cricket was then manufactured in Annecy, France and was also the first disposable lighter in the world. In 1985, Swedish Match acquired the Cricket brand name from the Gillette company. The Cricket brand name slowly became the global lighter brand for Swedish Match. Today, 450 million Cricket lighters are sold in more than 140 countries. One can clearly speak about this truly international brand: CRICKET.


Cricket has always been the most innovative lighter brand with:

  • The first disposable lighter in 1961.
  • The first fixed flame lighter in 1977.
  • The first self-extinguishing nylon body lighter in 1977.
  • The first child-resistant lighter in 1992.
  • The Fusion lighter that unites 2 Nylon colors in one body in 2004.


The 4 key distinguishing factors of a branded Cricket lighter are:

  • Best quality and safety
  • Best design and style
  • Nylon body (self extinguishing, extremely tough, high temperature resistance)
  • 100% safe and lasts longer than any lighter in the world
