Fire is essential in many situations, so multiple ways of starting fires is always a good idea. This lighter combines two very effective fire starting methods into a single tool. One side of the tool is a butane lighter with adjustable flame and the other is a permanent match. The whole lighter features very study metal contruction.
The butane lighter is the blue flame style, which will light just about anything on fire. A drawback of butane is that it generally does not work well in colder temperatures, which brings up the permanent match. A wick on the striking rod soaks up lighter fluid, which will then ignite when the rod is scraped on the firesteel attached to the side of the lighter. An o-ring keeps the fluid from drying out, even after long periods of storage.
