The differences between your run-of-the-mill Bic lighter and the Trench Lighter are rather stark. For one, the original World War I Trench lighter was built of spent bullet casings and scrap metal — i.e. just about anything soldiers could get their hands on in the trenches. This modern rendition isn’t, but it’s made to look like one with parts of brass and steel. A sliding flame protector switches up to light the wick, which sits in between a wind-guard for use in strong winds, and then flips back down to snuff out the fire. It’s also got a keyring loop on the tail end that grants access to the cylinder for refuelling.
