Dissim Inverted Lighter

A patent-pending circle grip that allows it to be ignited in the upright or inverted position while also giving the angles flame port all the area it needs to direct the fire to where you want it most. In other words, this is the ideal lighter for candles, fires, grills, fireworks or anything else you need to set ablaze–responsibly, of course.
