Our Craftsmanship

Craftsmen pour indefatigable passion into SAROME

Sarome lighters are not mass produced by machine, they are nearly handcrafted and assembled by hand for quality and longevity. Being a Japanese manufacturer for smoking article, Sarome continues this tradition in manufacturing cigarette lighters since its establishment at the early Showa Era (1940).
