What you’re looking at are lighters first introduced in 1926. These models were extremely popular until the era of mass-production hit and cheaper alternatives could be found in abundance. Instead of allowing them to become lost to time, a collection of Japanese craftsmen revived the storied flame makers. Douglass Field Lighters are built for the outdoors. A collection of O-rings make them operational even in harsh conditions. The “S” model even comes with a wind sleeve to ensure you can light whatever you need regardless of how bad the wind is whipping. The cap to the fuel chamber is really unique. On the “S” model it serves as a reserve fuel tank and conceals a spare flint for emergency situations. On the “L” model it simply hides a spare flint. Built from solid metal, these are some of the most attractive lighters we’ve ever come across.
