World's Best Lighters

Challenge #40 in the Language Of Light series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
Well, if not "officially" the best, then at least the most beautifully built lighter is our theme here. It can be any lighter you desire: from the modern gas lighters through ancient gasoline large-caliber-cartridge lighters to wind-resistant tinder or rope firemakers. Make it even better-looking by means of some extraordinary photo. Consider the ambient, angle, lightsource, focal distance... and the rules, so as not to have to upload more than once.
