S.T. Dupont MiniJet Blue Skull Lighter Review

This all metal single torch lighter features an automotive grade high gloss blue and black paint finish with a stylized skull on both sides. The pivot lever side ignition button has a blind emboss ST DUPONT and has no play in it. The top sliding doors automatically activate when pressing the ignition, keeping all debris out of the jet. It is a mini size, stepping down from the similarly performing but larger Maxijet units. The jet is very small an pinpoint precise, great for small cigars, touchups and the like but not large cigars. Thank you for sending this along for review, and I’ll be giving it away in a future contest! (more…)
