That is actually a Zippo that has been artistically enhanced by building an artistic body over the original one, it was done by a Japanese artisan, it doesn’t take a butane insert though.

2 questions James:
1) Is that a cigar cutter on that yellow lighter?

2) What is the brand of the table lighter (the one with a locomotive on it)?

That is too cool. I have always had bad luck with pipe lighters, so I only have a couple. One is a Xikar old-boy knock-off, and the other a Nimrod Sportsman. I also have a working Camel lighter that Camel was giving away about 20 years ago. Those are some great looking collections, my friends.

Yes it has a cutter built in. It's a Colibri. Hope I spelled it right.

The train table lighter is a Ronson trophy. Patent 2481.195 I believe. A gift from SS

The bassist in my band has a great lighter collection, drawers full like this. I was at his house on saturday and asked if I could have a picture for this thread.

Drawers full, you say?
He has been collecting them for over 20 years, some that are from 1800's others that are cool larger table lighters, one of the old navy rope lighters that essentially light a rope to make a coal since the salt and wind won't let you light an actual flame. It's a pretty cool collection.

get a couple pictures of the second row second
I will do that when I get a chance, he is a hermit in the mountains, it may be a couple of weeks.
Ask him if he knows about a butane squeeze lighter from probably the early 50's
I will ask him about this as well!!
