Vintage Lighters: table and pocket

The first lighters were invented in the 16th century and were converted flintlock pistols that used gunpowder. In 1910 Ronson released the first Pist-O-Liter. In the 1950s there was a switch in fuel choice from naphtha to butane. This also led to the use of piezoelectric spark, which replaced the need for a flint wheel.
