Description:

Group of Smoking Items, including lighters by Dunhill, Caran d'Ache, and S.T. Dupont; three cigar cutters, and a folding Asprey knife.

Note: "When I smoked cigarettes and cigars, I did it like a 1930s film star-Humphrey Bogart or Bette Davis; take your pick. Brandishing a beautiful lighter is especially gratifying, and I sometimes still carry one when I know that I'll be around smokers." - Jonathan Soroff
Estimate $200-300
