This is a beautiful lighter - but it broke after we had used it only two or three times. It looks like the little filament from which the flame emerges is bent - and there is no way to straighten it out.
I bought this because it was made in Germany and the coll design - I expected quality. This lasted as long as any Chinese made junk I've purchased. First the top fell off and I had to bend the tube to hold the top on. Then it eventually stopped lighting all together.
Don't waste your money on this crap!
Pros: The lighter is gorgeous. If you looking to have something interesting to look at, then his is it, just don't use it.
Cons: This lighter died upon the second use. I spent $26 for the lighter, so that tallies $13 cost per light, which is insanely expensive as well as frivolous. The first use was to lights some candles. The second use was to light a folded paper which was not catching right away and that was the last that the lighter worked! I did not contact the seller at the time it died because it was six-months before we used it the first time (we did not have any butane) and it was another extended period of time before the second use. I am also cautious in contacting some sellers because not all are gracious or earnestly seek resolution. I base this upon the reviews and found that no one raved about the seller replacing the lighter.
