Established in 1952 by Hiroshi Tsubota, Tsubota Pearl manufactures lighters, cigarette cases and leather goods in the heart of Tokyo. The Hard Edge model was developed in 1999 as a creative exploration into a fresh lighter design. The result is a fashionable smoking accessory representative of the vibrant design aesthetic of Japan.

From the creators: The Hard-edge was introduced in 1999 when contemporary lighter design had moved towards streamlined and decorative forms. We took a contrarian approach to introduce an un-ergonomic lighter with minimal ‘hard’ outlines, emphasizing its objectness. This was an outcome of multiple efforts to strip all decoration for function — the simple shape of the lighter is what emerged from this investigation. The Hard-edge has since become an iconic item in our catalogue.

The lighter functions very similarly to a Zippo: using liquid oil lighter fluid, a replaceable flint striker and a wick and wadding system.

To service, the insert is removed and fuel is poured in after lifting the felt pad on the bottom.

The flint is replaced by removing a small screw with attached spring in the bottom felt, and then dropping a new one in. 

Occasionally the wick will need to be replaced, which is also done via the bottom. When replacing it is important to zig zag the wick , interweaving it with the cotton.

As a lighter fluid system, the fuel will evaporate over time, even when not used. It usually requires filling every 1 - 2 weeks.
