    It sounds strange but it is true that cigarette lighter came before the match sticks. A German chemist named Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner in the year 1816 invented the first lighter and in 1930s the actual model of lighters came. But, match sticks were produced by a British chemist John Walker in somewhere around 1827.
