World's Best Lighters
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.

Lighter with history. This is a few years old now, made when I visited relatives, the father of the family - who had already passed away - had spent time in one of Oscar Schindler's factories, and survived WW II. The inscriptions on this lighter are from that time. There are inscriptions on both sides and the front and back. I don't think they realize that this is a historic artifact.
