Gave up twelve years ago now. This was an attempt to have a good lighter for 'special occasions'. These days it lays in the box unused except for emergencies when you need a 'spark'!

I think it was bought at the duty free store in Fiji in the 1980's on the way to the US and Canada. Maybe it was on a European trip through Dubai. I can't remember. I think it's the real thing. I remember paying enough for it even though it was just silver plated. At the time I knew that I wanted a gold one like my mate Eric Smith's, but .... 'beggars can't be choosers'.

Swiss made Dunhill Rollagas lighter. Silver plated subtle 'bark' pattern in very good condition. Working as new. 63 x 22 x 12mm. Takes butane gas. Presented in its grey Dunhill case with instruction booklet.

The size is about 2.5" high.

    Hi Marty, slipped through your fingers?
    They certainly are tactile.
    A certain weight, a balance too.

    Does it have a flat strip on it that can be engraved?
  18. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 months ago
    I have just had another look AIMATHENA and there is no blank strip on this model.
