ASR Lighters

ASR - Named after the manufacturer, American Safety Razor, produced cigarette lighters in the late 1940s and 1950s. The same basic mechanism is found in all of their lighters. They were headquartered at 915 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY

The Company traces its origins to Brooklyn, New York, where in 1875 the Kampfe Brothers introduced the Star, the first safety razor manufactured in the United States.

In 1906, the several businesses begun by the Kampfes and their workers were consolidated as American Safety Razor Company.
