46 Funky Fire Starters

From Undercover Spy Lighters to Cufflink Lighters

— December 27, 2012 — Unique
From spy lighters to explosive bomb lighters, there is no shortage of innovation when it comes to fire starters.

Lighters can often be a tough accessory to hold onto. The natural temptation for anyone borrowing a lighter is to put it in their pocket after finishing with it. It's not a matter of theft, it's a matter of habit. Due to this unfortunate habit, a lot of lighters go missing. With this in mind, consider some of these over the top lighters as a way to make your lighter so noticeable that it can't be casually stored in your friends' pockets.

Try out the spy lighters that feature hidden recording devices for some real fun. That way, even if your friend does accidentally steal your lighter, you'll get to hear everything he or she says while you're not around.
