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

    Pros:

    -100% metal, no plastic to be seen anywhere
    -Fuel compartment cap has a large deep slot to unscrew, can use a coin or just about anything else to open and refuel
    -Zippo compatible consumable parts (wick, flints), readily available
    -Lights first time, every time
    -Fuel cap seals with an o-ring, far less evaporation than the Zippo design.
    -Attractive design, looks and feels great

    Cons:

    -It would be nice if the wick cap also had a seal, but is impossible due to the design (o-ring would melt)
    -There is no wind screen (as on a Zippo)

    OtherThoughts:

    I haven't had it long enough to know if the ring/leather strap/rivet will hold up to some hard pulls, but it's just the strap. It can easily be replaced, the anchor on the body is strong.

    Bottomline:

    This is well built dependable lighter, good for use as a primary or backup. For the price you might as well get a couple.
