No frills, nothing special. I've had it for about 10 years I guess. Been in a drawer probably 9 of those. This thread made me pull it out and get it going again two weeks ago so I figured I'd post it. I sandblasted this lighter a long time ago because I didn't like it shiny. Now I can abuse it without worrying over a scratch.

I'm giving up on bics. Quality has dropped dramatically the last few years. I'm not sure if I will stick with the Zippo or not yet.

I use matches, there's more somewhere including one I've been losing and finding for 25 or so years, currently it's lost. Gave a few away too since I never use them. Here's the only two I know are around.

Found it! Also checked the date and it turns out I've been losing and finding this thing for close to 30 years, now if I could only find that Buck knife what does the same. Took it to a wire wheel about twenty years ago, it was a promo piece with company stuff I got tired of looking at.

Now how does an 18 year old lose something for thirty years :bag:? Just kidding. I like the new finish in this bad boy.
