Hand-cut Cigar Matches

The absolute best way to light your premium cigar is with a cigar match, and not with any cigar match, but with the best cigar match. Each of my cigar matches are individually cut by hand using my favorite backsaw and then whittled to shape using my favorite sloyd knife. Plus, my cigar matches are the best cigar matches because they are 3 time thicker than your standard cigar match, providing ample burn-time to light your cigar (up to 60 seconds or so).



I offer several options for my cigar matches:

  • Quantity of 18 with a leather pouch for carrying them on the go. The leather pouch includes a strike pad on the back for lighting the matches.
  • Bulk quantities of 50 or 100 with the option to include a leather box for elegant storage.
  • Cigar matches can be cut to your choice of 3.25" or 4"

When combining your matches with the leather pouch or leather box you can choose from three color options: tan, brown, or black.

Introducing Best Cigar Matches by A. M. Aiken, your source for hand cut cigar matches crafted individually by me in the heart of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I meticulously cut each match using a backsaw, and then whittle it into its final shape using a sloyd knife, making every piece a unique work of art.

Offered in lengths of 3.25 inches or 4 inches, these cigar matches are three times thicker than a standard match. This design allows for a burn time of up to 60 seconds, providing ample time for lighting your cigar to perfection.

In line with my philosophy of "buy less buy better", I provide matches in multiple quantities to suit your needs. Choose from sets of 18 that come complete with a handmade leather pouch for easy transport. This specially designed pouch even features a match striker on the back, allowing you to light your cigars on the go. Alternatively, opt for bulk quantities of 50 or 100 with an optional leather box for stylish and practical storage of your bulk purchases.

This is the best cigar accessory I now own! The case is beautiful. The matches are thick, so unlike store bought matches, these burn all the way to the end, allowing you to use just one match to completely light a cigar. Look no further, you need this pouch and matches. Nice work, Aaron!!

About A. M. Aiken

Premium Leather Goods

Aaron M. AikenHi there 👋 My name is Aaron Aiken. I make the leather goods that you are viewing here on this very focused page, and also all of the leather goods available from my full website. All of my designs are original and mostly started with a need I had for my own use or as a gift I wanted to give; because of this each item is highly specific in how it is made and intended to be used.

I use only veg-tan leather for all of my leather goods, as opposed to chrome tan. The vegetable tanning process takes longer but results in a better, stronger, and more natural hide from start to finish. For my leather goods that are dyed, they are dyed by-hand using wool remnants. This dying process offers a unique one-of-a-kind look to each and every leather good. The same can even be said for my leather products that have been drum-dyed at the tannery. Each hide is different because each cow is different. Each leather good will likely contain various marks, scratches, and imperfections that demonstrate just how very natural this material really is.

I use a mix of hand-tools and light machinery to create my products, utilizing the method that works best for the given need. All of my leather goods come with a lifetime no questions asked warranty should anything ever go wrong with your leather good. I stand by my products and my craftsmanship. I like to say that they are each "made to last a lifetime or longer."
