I got this free as a promotional item, so I suppose I can t be too critical considering it didn t cost me anything, but from a functional standpoint it s unreliable and performs poorly. On the plus side, the lighter is pretty nice looking with some satisfying heft to it, comes with a holder/case and the fold-out punch is handy. Unfortunately, the lighter requires an average of 8-10 strikes before getting any kind of flame and even then the flame often doesn t stay lit for more than a second or two. That said, when it rarely works, it does produce a nice strong twin flame. From a user friendliness angle, there s no indicator for fuel level and the flame height adjustment requires a properly sized screwdriver, a steady hand and a magnifying glass. I haven t tried any other products from this manufacturer, so I don t know if I got a lemon or if this is par for the course, but the bottom line is that I m very disappointed with it.
