Value for money – TeamPistol Flint and Wick Set (11-Piece) Reviews

posted by Peztilent on 01/07/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It is cheap and it works. The flint gives off lots of sparks, liked those in disposable lighters. The wick absorb the fuel well and produces good flame. Not sure if it will last as long as the Zippo wick though.
Cons:
The flint will oxidize or disintegrate I think. I stored the unused flints in a film canister and after a few months there is powdery substance. It doesn't come in resealable packaging or container.
Other:
Came across SKU: 56058 which I think is a better alternative.
Bottomline:
Buy this or any of the flint and wick set here at DX instead of going for the original Zippos if you use them up very often. Although not as good as the original but they work!
