The Douglass Field S Lighter an anomaly from another era. With its impeccable construction and painstaking attention to detail, it’s hard to imagine it being economical to produce. It’s a misfit, a rarity, a lone wolf - and that’s what makes it so special.
Handcrafted in Japan by master craftsmen and fashioned individually from solid metal stock to 0.001” tolerances (you read that right), this Douglass Field S Lighter for sale gives ‘fanatical’ a whole new meaning. This is a true labor of love, and it shows.
Most notably, the Douglass Field S Lighter features a water-tight o-ring sealed screw-in lock mechanism, which completely seals up the ignition and the flint wheel making it water proof. It’s designed to be used even when it is slightly wet. Additionally, there is a hidden threaded cap at the base of the tank with a small storage capacity for emergency reserve fuel. The cap is sealed with yet another cap that unscrews to reveal a spare flint rod. When it comes to sheer ingenuity and over-engineering, it’s hard to beat the Douglass Field S Lighter. What astounding is how it combines these incredibly intuitive and useful design features with a level of craftsmanship that borders on obsession. If you’re looking for an everyday carry lighter that can accompany you to the end of the earth, there is simply no better option that the Douglass Field S Lighter.
