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.
