IMCO Lighters | Cooler (Hotter?) than any Zippo

No disrespect to the legendary Zippo, but IMCO lighters are really in a different category entirely… produced since 1918 in Austria (the Triplex Super above since 1936 with the same design), IMCO has sold over 500,000,000,000 lighters. No, that’s not a typo. Wind proof and retro-sleek, these solid little chunks of nickel plated steel are truly timeless in design and virtually flawless in functionality. At $10-15 an IMCO lighter is a fantastic piece of design history available to anyone, and a great way to light your cigarette if you happen to smoke.
