This triple jet flame lighter is easily ignited by sliding the slider on the front with the thumb after you has opened the lid. Once ignited three powerful flames appear. The lid must be closed manually. At the front is a reflective window that lights up blue to easily keep track of whether there is still enough gas in the lighter. The flame height can be adjusted with the wheel at the bottom. On the backside is a cigar cutter that makes the most perfect v-cuts in your cigar.
