A quick review. – Austrian Classic Streamline Stainless Steel Oil Lighter Reviews

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

Pros:
Looks good and ignites reliably. The wick is protected by a small metal cup when the lighter is closed, ensuring the gasoline doesn't evaporate too quickly.
Cons:
Some edges aren't finely machines and will scratch your skin a bit. It takes some strength to open/fire it -- albeit that may be a good child-proofing. Not windproofed by any means, but that's a common trait of gasoline lighters.
Other:
It's hard to estimate fuel capacity, but probably about the same as a common zippo. It holds one, or perhaps at most two, flintstones. Slightly larger than regular gas lighters.
Bottomline:
Good buy :)
