    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.

    And here I was thinking this thread was going to be the opposite of heavy porn!

    I am partial to Old Boy style lighters, dislike Zippos, and find the really nice (and $$$) lighters too fiddly.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    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.

    I see a bunch of claws, and at least one percussion lighter. 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.

    the percussion lighter that I recognize in the pic started in the late 1800's, although I don't know how long they were produced for. They may have gone out of production before the turn of the century.

    Ask him if he knows about a butane squeeze lighter from probably the early 50's. If so, I would like to know more about it. I've seen one, and never have seen it again, even when searching online. I think that it was probably French.
