Most inexpensive zip~-style lighter I've ever seen – Hawk Vintage Metal Oil Lighter (Brown) Reviews

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

Pros:
In terms of size/design, most perfect imitation of zip~ lighter I've found. Compared side-to-side with the real thing, the only difference I could see was the direction of the grain on the striker wheel. Has that satisfying sound when you open or close it. Comes with a good flint, and a better wick than I got in even a genuine zip~ lighter.
Cons:
None, really. Especially not at this price.
Other:
Design is on one side, not mirrored.

The finish is more shiny than I expected.

Ships without fluid in it, since it's an oil-type lighter.
Bottomline:
I'm going to buy some more and sell them, only way people will ever know these aren't zippos is from the brand on the bottom
