    A nice pocket lighter

    posted by SrJoben on 01/17/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Well made, sturdy, well finished Reliable ignition. Fairly wind resistant. The flame heats a wire element that glows red. This among other things make it easier to tell if it's ignited when using it outside in daylight.
    Cons:
    A bit heavy. Fairly small fuel tank.

    Very nice

    posted by SrJoben on 01/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It has a large fuel tank. The tank is transparent so you can easily see when it's time to refill it. Ergonomic shape makes it easier to use for hobby work than other lighters that are purpose built for lighting cigarettes. Lights on the first press every...
    Cons:
    The angle of the head makes it a bit more vulvernable to damage. I carried it in my pocket for a while but that caused the scr...

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

    Pros:
    Cheap price. Compact size. Light weight. Lots of fun.

    The rubber bands have a tendency to get tangled. This is only a minor annoyance though. The handle might be a little too shor...

    A good compact knife

    posted by SrJoben on 10/07/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Came fairly sharp (almost enough to shave arm hairs). Attractive appearance. Practical blade shape and size. Very compact
    Cons:
    Rough pivot. Required a drop of oil to open and close smoothly. Very small smooth handle can be tiring to hold onto for serious...

    Just plain awesome

    posted by SrJoben on 08/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good striker. Comfortable handles. Much much cheaper than name brands. The striker design is a HUGE improvement over previous DX firesteels like sku.12305
    Cons:
    There is nothing at all wrong with this product. ...Ok fine, the lanyard isn't fantastic, i replaced it with paracord. But tha...

    Decent Value

    posted by SrJoben on 08/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Strong as it needs to be. Decent quality split ring. O-ring sealed.
    Cons:
    Maybe a bit too small for some purposes. Fitting more than one bill of US paper money takes a LOT of careful folding. I feel ...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Nice appearance. The dials turn smoothly. You can set the combination quickly and easily. At least on mine it's not too easy to feel when the tumblers click like on many cheap combination locks.
    Cons:
    This is not a heavy duty lock. The U shaped piece does not go far down into the lock, it just rests in a little dimple. I haven...

    A great piece of gear

    posted by SrJoben on 08/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Much much cheaper than the CountyComm Peanut lighter hereafter referred to as 'the real thing' O-ring seal should keep fuel from evaporating indefinitely. This is a good item for survival kits.
    Cons:
    Build quality is obviously lower than the real thing. The threads are rough, the insert on mine slides out too easily, and it's...

    A neat little lighter.

    posted by SrJoben on 08/27/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Unique style and function. Very compact, could easily go on a keychain.
    Cons:
    It's o-ring sealed, but the fluid evaporates anyway. Small fuel capacity + evaporation can lead to it being empty when you need...
