Beats buying BICs – Hawk Vintage Metal Oil Lighter (Brown) Reviews

posted by Webmaestro on 05/07/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Like a Zippo lighter at a fraction of the price. Nice kind of rugged copper finish. Sturdy construction although the hinge is a tiny little bit loose.
Cons:
The striker wheel is not exactly aligned with the flint. When the flint is all worned out the is a tiny bit left.
Other:
The flint it came with is kind of cheap and will not last very long, depending on how often you use it. I suggest getting sku4063 on the same order.
Bottomline:
It is the best lighter I ever owned. If you have problems and it does not light up on the first try it is probably because your flint is cheap of the whick is dirty -- pull it and cut it. Don't forget it uses lighter OIL, not butane gaz... get some before you receive your order !
