In contention for the prize for the most lighters per square foot of booth space is Blazer Products, which makes a number of lighters for the cigar industry and beyond, including models that can handle light industrial work as well as kitchen applications and beyond. While the majority of the company’s products are returning items, one of its most popular got an update for 2016.
Blazer Little Buddy II
Blazer has taken its popular Little Buddy and made a couple of changes to it that at first might seem like a downgrade, but when the new price is taken into consideration, makes it quite a bargain. First up, production occurs in Japan, a big selling point for the lighter. Gone is the fuel window and the flame adjustment is a bit underwhelming, but the functionality has improved, with a peak temperature of approximately 2400 degrees Fahrenheit. It is available in three color options, white, black and grey.
