This single jet torch lighter features a semi-gloss black plastic and brushed aluminum finish. The weight and construction feels very good in your hand, and operation of the switch is easy enough although better leverage would be appreciated. The front side features a plexi sight window into the reservoir, a welcome feature. The back side features a spring loaded punch cutter that flips down and self-clears as it closes. The bottom has a nice big adjustment wheel that is easy to turn but won’t spin accidentally in your pocket. The top cover flips open with a positive spring action, clear of the flame. Testing with 10 second bursts proved it to light 33 full times including periodic adjustment increases to maintain flame height. Thank you very much to BuyLighters.com for generously donating this for review, it’s greatly appreciated! Photography by BG Pictures.
