Blazer Torch Tiger Stripe Brown Cigar Lighter
Blazer Torch Black Cigar Lighter
This classic Blazer pocket micro torch lighter looks like a fire extinguisher, but we assure you it's quite the opposite. It features a powerful, single blue torch flame for a perfect toast and light every time, plus a chained safety cap. The clear fuel chamber lets you know when to refill, too.
I've had FOUR of these in over 20 years and they flatout WORK - for a long time - consistently - no problems. I've bought Xicar because of the lifetime guarantee and have about 4 of them but you need 4 because I use one for 2 months, it quits working and it takes 2 months to get it back from Xicar so I have their other lighters for backups to their backups but my Blazer's rock. I recommend the total clear one so you can see at a glance your fuel level and also purge before EVERY refill. Forget Colibri - beautiful but not functional. Downside: the round barrel feels chunky in my pocket but I know it's close by.
The lighter wouldn't take any fluid, just squirted all over the place. Called support and they sent me some adapter tips....non of which actually fit the lighter. But after cutting the tip on the bottle itself, I was able to force some liquid in by holding it horizontally. But excess dripped everywhere.Never lights on the 1st click. And now I have to hold it horizontally just to get it to light. As if too much gas is being pushed thru it. If it was $12 it'd be worth it...but not at $30.
This thing worked for about a week. Then it quit. Kept trying, but finally just threw it in the junk drawer.
I've had 2 of these lighters, and both of them worked fine for the first 4 to 6 weeks. Then no more flame on. Loved them both while they worked, but no so much since the 2nd one crapped out on me. Now they cost quite a bit, and I won't buy without instructions on how to disassemble and repair one myself.
