Dependable, possibly indestructible – Trendy Oil Lighter with Leather Strap Reviews

posted by tiuky on 03/12/2012 Certified Owner

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)
Other:
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.
