Good lighter – American-Spirit Metal Oil Lighter Reviews

Pros:
Nice lighter. One of the few cheap ones on DX that doesn't have engrish, which is why I bought this one instead of some of the others they have. The striker wheel seems to work pretty well. Creates a lot of sparks and lights easily. I can even do the flesh torch trick (if you look this up and try it, please be careful! Make sure you are next to a sink or something when you practice)
Cons:
The cotton isn't packed very well, but it's not a big deal to replace it. If you search google really quickly, you can find instruction on how to replace it, and cotton balls are really cheap and you probably have them lying around anyways.
Other:
The case is fairly thick compared to some of the other lighters I've used. This makes it a bit heavier, but I kind of like the added weight.
Bottomline:
If you want a cheap Zippo-style lighter, this is a good buy. You should be able to do all the Zippo tricks with this.
