Nice gift even for non smokers – Metallic Oil Lighter with Matted Grey Color Design Reviews

posted by Ibirapua on 06/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Solid built, cheap priced. Compared with the Zippos sold here, it looks like a 2nd grade device but it is still very good by its own merits.
Cons:
Mine come with some oxide in the finish but I was able to remove it easily. The box is nice but does not match with the classic lighter's design and mine came in a pink box (a lighter for ladies only? I don't think so).
Other:
You can also get replacement flint stones and cotton wick here at very low prices (even the genuine ones from Zippo). Just avoid using cheap fluid: they smell bad and make it hard to ignite sometimes.
Bottomline:
Need to give a nice gift for a smoker friend and you can only spend a few bucks? This is the answer you want.
