This is an excellent lighter that puts out a nice size flame. It is sturdy and the hand grip is textured for secure handling.
The stand is removable and I like that it doesn't come off unless you want it to when picked up. There are 2 small shortcomings which is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5. First is the flame adjustment which when set to low does nothing. Adjust it from medium to high and it is fine. Be careful not to start out at full setting or you may be looking for new eyebrows or half of your cigar may be burnt. The other minor complaint is that I need to use an adapter on my butane can otherwise cold butane sprays out but that maybe different with other butane brands. It is a very nice looking lighter and I think it could light a cigar in a hurricane which is easier than using an acetylene torch which is cumbersome, expensive and heavy. It would be nice to have someway of knowing how much fuel is left in it but given it size I don't expect to be filling this nearly as often as my regular lighters. It is worth the price and you will like it if you buy it.
