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

Pros:
The device consists of a rectangular shell, with a metal rod like device that screws into the shell. One end of the rod has a wick. The case is filled with lighter fuel. To use, the rod is removed and scratched against a long flint rod installed on one side of the case. The rod's wick catches fire, and resembles a match. To extinguish, the burning rod wick can be placed into the shell, where it then absorbs more fuel for the next use.
Cons:
Metal could be thicker.
Other:
Its has its own wiki page!
