If you can think of something to talk about that is not related to knives, discuss it here.

Cigarette Lighters

Do we have any members that are into collecting cigarette lighters in general? Not just Zippos but others as well.

Only Zippos for me, but I think TPK (Tom), for one, has lighters from other makers posted here somewhere.

Ray,
A few lighters were mentioned in the below "What Else Do You Collect Besides Pocket Knives" thread. However, not many.
I have only one old lighter, and a couple books.
Perhaps a new thread for "Cigarette Lighters" would be interesting?

Dan,
I have PM'd Tom but in reading the post in the link above, he was just thinking about getting into lighters.
I have a good friend who was cleaning out an old barn and found a Dunhill in the barn. In looking around Google and such, there are some very high prices on those. He is sending photos so maybe I can post some when I get them.

I remember from when I used to smoke a pipe that anything with the Dunhill name on it comes with a hefty price tag. Whether brand new or well used.

Here are a few from my accumulation.
The two top ones in the last picture also have knife blades

An interesting collection. These are types I've never seen before.

Holy cow, Ray. I have never seen anything like those. I did finally get some photos of the one my buddy found and I'll try to attach a couple.

That's what I thought.
Took me back to my childhood; every home had a coffee table with a cigarette lighter and ashtray on it.
Take care and God bless,

Had several but just accumulated, never (consciously collected). I smoked for 33 years but quit smoking in 1995 about three months before my granddaughter was born. Probably ten years ago, I sold all the lighters that had no sentimental value.

First time I've seen a watch incorporated into a lighter. I have several letter openers and one money clip knife that have watches in them. I'll have to put them in a separate post.

Ray, here is a Dunhill table lighter in the form of a lighthouse. It is available in case you want to jump into the bidding. :)
