"Binalite" - superb name. I used to set my bin alight at work quite often in the days when I was a smoker. ;D

Internet search results would suggest that it is a trade name for the items (or perhaps a company?) rather than a name of the maker of the glass.

googling only turns up various eBay results  >:( , some of which suggest it is a Japanese brand of lighter.
