  • A long, loooong flint

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    . Cotton-stuffed body holds a lot of lighter fluid

    . Screw-in striker cap has an O-ring to retard fluid evaporation

    . Has a long flint embedded in a channel in the side, should last a good many camping trips

    . Nice mini-clip to attach to keychain

    Cons:

    No retainer for screw in/out steel striker/wick, be careful not to drop it where you can't find it!

    OtherThoughts:

    A few squirts of lighter fluid into the top opening will saturate the cotton inside, allowing the cotton wick to absorb fluid via osmosis, when inserted.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap and reliable and not much to break, should last a good long time
