Elie Bleu’s J-15 lighter and EBC-4 cutter are getting new colorways as the French company is adding a design that it uses on its famous humidors to other accessories.
Alba is an homage to classic cigar boxes that Elie Bleu has used on various humidors for more than two decades. Three different colors—black, blue and red—will be offered on the J-15 lighter and EBC-4 cutter. The J-15 lighter is a single-flame lighter that debuted last year. Its flame is ignited by triggering the lid of the lighter. Each lighter features a fuel window and the company also sells an optional leather case ($60).
The EBC-4 cutter also debuted last year. It’s a double guillotine cutter that features one blade that extends from the body of the lighter after the small silver trigger is pressed down. It can cut cigars up to 54 ring gauge in half and can handle the caps of cigars up to 60-64 ring gauge depending on the cap design.
Each product will ship to stores in August. In the U.S., the Elie Bleu J-14 Alba will have an MSRP of $240, while the EBC-4 Alba will have an MSRP of $230.
In addition to humidors, Elie Bleu has previously released ashtrays with the Alba design.
