Just recieved this lighter in the mail and have to say i'm impressed. First of all, The picture in the amazon listing is wrong. the lighter is black with Stainless top, stainless workings and a chrome base. that wasnt a concern for me though, this lighter is nice! Took it out of the package and figured I would fill it first. Didnt have to as the lighter came with fuel in it already. I figured there wasnt much in there so after testing, I did fill it. As far as "feel" goes, the lighter fits in the palm of the hand nicely. It is big, but no bigger than other table top lighters of the same caliber. The nozzle/neck opens 180 degrees so there is a lot of accessability there. The trigger does not have a safety lock so you can just pick it up, extend the nozzle and pull the trigger. There is a button to hold it "on" when ignited so natually you'll want to be careful with that. The flame is strong and can be adjusted very easily using the twist dial on the bottom. there is a little folding tab there so you dont need a screwdriver, just snap the tab open and turn. I was able to extend the flame amost 3 inches before the base of the flame lifted off the burner so it can really push out some fuel at that setting. I will say this too; this is not a toy. Keep this away form kids/babies. The neck hold position real well when open and it is very comfortable to use. I would say that for the money, its worth it and if you take care of it, it will last a long time. thanks for reading.
