Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
-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
-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)
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.
This is well built dependable lighter, good for use as a primary or backup. For the price you might as well get a couple.
