Natural lacquer, with its pearl-like shimmer and its fascinating shine and depth, is one of the finest materialsto adorn S.T. Dupont’s objects. Lacquer was first used during the second millennium BC. It was introduced in Europe during the 18th century at the height of the fashion for lacquer under theMing Dynasty. S.T. Dupont’s craftsmen are among the few to have mastered the art of lacquer, a difficult organic material, by rediscovering and perfecting ancient Japanese and Chinese techniques. It is resistant to shocks, scratches and fire.
All S.T. Dupont accessories in natural lacquer are engraved with a lacquer leaf symbol.

The legendary ‘Ping’ sound
The Ligne 2 lighters emit a characteristic and immediately identifiable crystal-clear sound, the ‘Ping’, when the lid is clicked open. The ‘Ping’ sound appeared accidentally on the Ligne 2 lighter in 1976. However, after noticing that many of the Ligne 2 lighters received for servicing had been slightly ‘altered’ by owners trying to perfect the sound, the Manufacture teams finally decided not to modify the design and construction of the Ligne 2 lighter.
Over time, the S.T. Dupont lighter, the emblematic product of the famous house, has become a cult object passed
down from generation to generation.
TRADITIONAL LIGHTERS WITH A YELLOW FLAME: In 1941, S.T. Dupont created the first luxury lighter. Practical and sophisticated, it was also synonymous with elegance thanks to its pure lines, its fine materials and its reassuring, satisfying weight. From the body to the tank, S.T. Dupont lighters are fashioned entirely from a block of solid brass resulting in a hard-wearing object that can withstand the test of time. Those lighters are technically advanced products ensuring maximum reliability: the production of a single lighter requires no fewer than 70 components, 600 operations, and 300 quality control tests. Production time for a lighter is 4 to 5 months.This precious object is adorned with silver,
gold, palladium or lacquer.
INNOVATION WITH TORCH FLAME LIGHTERS:
In its constant quest for innovation, S.T. Dupont launched a new line of torch flame lighters in 2000; light and ergonomic ensuring efficient lighting in all circumstances. S.T. Dupont created also the torch lighter in the same body as traditional lighter dedicate to cigar smokers.
