The Lighter


Our friends at UD turned us on to the newly unveiled Woodlands Co. online shop, and it happens to have one of our favorite lighters in stock.

It’s called the IMCO Super lighter, an Austrian art deco device from the early 20s that’s been in continuous production ever since. Nearly everything’s replaceable—the fluid, of course, but also the flint, the wick and the tank itself. And since it disassembles so easily, it’s a handy item to have for camping—or any other situation in which you need to douse something in lighter fluid...

But mostly camping.
