Vintage-style Kerosene Lighter
Check It Out

Here's a little lighter that's a little off the beaten scorched path. Its look is a little vintage and a little steampunk. Its functionality is a little like a Zippo and a little like the kerosene lamps my grandma kept around when I was a kid, wicks soaked and ready for the next power outage. Its size is a little...little. At around 2-1/2" tall and 1" wide the lighter is good news for those of you who would want it in your pocket or on a keychain, but bad for those who would hope for a more prominent presence for display.

The kerosene lighter is made almost entirely of polished cast metal, less the lid's open / close mechanism, the flint, the wick, and the cotton. Lighter fluid is not included, but any standard brand will work for filling.
