The Match Striker is destined to become central to your combustion-focused rituals. Whether you’re setting a mood with incense, creating ambience with candles, or building a mighty blaze – it all starts with a flick of the wrist. Crafted from solid cast iron, the Match Striker is surprisingly dense and serves as a nice anchor against which to create a spark. The exterior surface features a deep knurling pattern, which provides the necessary friction to bring it all together.

Craighill are a design and manufacturing brand based in New York, founded by designer, Hunter Craighill, in 2015. With a focus on creating distinct and useful objects for you and your home, they have a wide range of products made from different materials. Their design ethos explores all possibilities and is driven by personal curiosity, industrial experimentation, and basic utility.
They believe that understanding more about how a product is made, and the reasons behind its design decisions, can increase appreciation for it and discourage a culture of consumption and waste. One of the best parts of owning and enjoying physical objects is that they can move us out of our busy, overworked minds and return us to the sensory pleasures of touching, seeing, and doing.
Craighill design their products in their studio in Brooklyn, New York. The studio occupies part of an old textile mill that was built in 1868. The huge building has been split up and is now home to artists, designers, furniture makers, and other craftspeople. The Craighill studio has a small showroom where they present their products, which is open to curious passers-by.
