The mailman makes me want to PUNCH a kitten.

Every day he doesnt bring me my new lighter is another kitten getting punched, or choked.

Waiting on an IM Corona Old Boy. I have wanted one since i first held one. But at over $100 bucks for a lighter it was hard to justify the coin for it. It took a while but i finally pulled the trigger. Now im stalking my mailman, and kittens, until it arrives.

I know they are not real common so i thought id share a picture. They are butane and flint lighters. There are LOTS of different ones with different finishes and they vary in pricing a lot.

The one on the far left is the one im getting. Its on of the cheapest ones. It varies in price from 100-125. Its just Matte Black finish.

The middle one has real briar wood and 24K gold plating. It varies from 150 to over 200.

The one on the right is made of real sterling silver, cheapest i have seen it is over 600 bucks.




They are not cheap, but you get what you pay for. If you google reviews of these things its hard to find a single person speaking a negative word about them. The guy that showed me his had it for over 10 years and it never failed to light. If they do ever fail to light, it just cost 9 bucks for any repair work. And thats really just to cover the return shipping... I can handle that.

I have been through several mid-priced lighters in the past. Never had much luck with zippo, they'd dry up and not work when i need them to and id always need to put fuel in them every few days. I have had vectors and other torches, but they never last either. Despite bleeding the tank and using high quality butane. But i think the search for a reliable lighter has come to an end, finally.... I hope.

I am still laughing. I know you ain't that mean, WW, but the I can picture you doing it with a knuck and all.
I see a box of Kittens named Monday to Friday.
You punch out Monday and look at Tuesday and say "You better hope that mailman brings me my lighter tomorrow !" and little Tuesday meows pitifully. A doomed little pussycat......
In the box only Friday looks content. He is confident he won't get punched or choked.....lol.

I have used the butane pipe insert for the zippo, it worked much better at holding fuel than the standard zippo.
