The Navy Blue Matte Collection contains two different lighters and one cutter, none of the models are new but this color has not been offered before. Furthermore, this will only be sold in the American market, a departure from most S.T.Dupont products which are offered to stores worldwide. Les Mann, vp of major accounts for Coles of London, said the items are “limited production,” which means that there will be a single production run though pieces are not numbered.
The MSRPs for the Navy Blue Matte Collection are as follows:
- S.T.Dupont Défi XXtrême Lighter — $295
- S.T.Dupont maxiJet Lighter — $225
- S.T.Dupont Double Cigar Cutter — $190
The maxiJet Lighter is a longstanding single-flame torch lighter that uses a side ignition and contains a fuel window. S.T.Dupont’s Défi XXtrême is one of the company’s newest models, introduced in 2020. It features two jet flames, pointed together to create an angled flame. Finally, the Double Cigar Cutter is a combination cutter that has both a straight cutter and v-cutter and is capable of cutting cigars up to 64 ring gauge.
Mann told halfwheel he hopes to have the items at stores by the end of Q3. S.T.Dupont will show off the collection at next week’s 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show, which takes place July 9-12 in Las Vegas.
