For the 75th anniversary of its lighters, S.T.Dupont will release a new lighter known as the Initial.

The dual-flame soft flame is inspired by the original S.T.Dupont lighter, which was committed by the Maharaja of Patiala in 1941. The Initial lighter is being launched alongside S.T.Dupont’s new multi-refill butane can which will refill the lighter up to 14 times according to the company. For a limited time, the company is running a promotion where customers can receive a free can of butane with purchase of the Initial lighter.

It is offered in four finishes, including a gold and white bronze, priced at $496.
