Matches, matchbooks and lighters are generally created for the simple purpose of making fire, but the creations you'll see here take this generally utilitarian design further than before.

From incredible art with matches all the way to $79,000 lighters, these incendiary innovations are definitely more than just tools to make fire with.

Implications - Whether you are trying to light a fire on a deserted island or just really craving to light up a cigarette, matches and lighters can seem like life savers. In this style-conscious society, having plain and ordinary fire starters does not suffice. Having creative designs and unique functions is what makes these flammable finds the life savers you would want to reach for.
