This handcrafted Field Lighter from Douglass is different than your standard mass production lighters. High precision and expertly crafted with an eye to detail, this lighter features a waterproof case. Fashioned from solid brass, it has a water-tight mechanism that when you lift up the screw-in lock and tighten, it completely seals up the ignition and the flint wheel. The lighter is designed to be safely used even when it is slightly wet.

An additional feature of the Douglass Field Light is a threaded cap at the base of the tank with a small storage capacity for emergency reserve fuel. The cap is sealed with yet another cap that unscrews to reveal a spare flint rod!

Wow! Amazing craftsmanship
Alvin B.
I just got this lighter and it is amazing. I first saw it on forums a few years ago and said I had to have it but I just didn't go for it until now. Beautiful piece of kit. Everything fits perfectly. I am hoping that the fuel will not evaporate as quickly as a regular Zippo lighter. Well with the o rings it shouldn't but time will tell how well the seals are. The lighter does take flints that are unique to the lighter itself and only place to buy them is from BladeHQ or from Japan. The Maintenance kit is also special order. BladeHQ doesn't have it in stock and I just ordered a maintenance kit from Japan. I like to have spares on hand just in case. All in all, I am happy with the lighter and plan to buy another one in another finish.
well made for sure

This lighter as others have said is very well constructed and smartly designed. The makers obviously have superb quality controls. This lighter though does have some unfortunate issues. First off, it gets hot very quickly due to the recessed wick design. In less than 10 seconds it gets almost to hot to hold. No doubt this excessive heat is also cooking the O-rings inside the body. This in my opinion disqualifies this lighter as a "survival" or fire starting option. It would be great for lighting cigarettes though. Great conversation piece at your local tavern. The Zippo is a much better option for survival/EDC due to its ability to stay lit and not overheat. The O-rings preventing evaporation are great and are what drew me to this lighter. Definitely worth the purchase price.
Great lighter

The thing that sold me on this was the reserve fuel tank- always have fuel when you need it. However, these lighters are so scarce that it's nearly impossible to find instructions on maintenance and whatnot. For example, after many hours of searching online, I still have no idea how to change the wick.

Solid, tight construction and decent flame. Ignition took a bit getting used to, not as fluid as a zippo, but.... what the hey. Love that brass. Primary use: 1 of 2 fire sources I EDC. Get one.
The best oil lighter...period

Had this thing over a week now and I'm impressed. I'm not a smoker but I like to have at least two forms of firestarting capabilities on me at all times. I love zippos but they just plain don't work when I need them. So I've been stuck with bics which don't work great at altitude or other butane lighters that suck in the cold. I filled the lighter one time and it has remained consistent from day one. I light it between 10 to 15 times a day in 3 second increments. 8 days in still good to go on the first strike every time. I highly recommend this lighter to anyone that seeks a reliable companion and doesn't like the ascetics of bics or the maintenance of a Zippo. Just buy it and thank me later.
Strong, sexy & worth the money

I agree with with the gentlemen who also was pro for this lighter. 2 quick stories. I was recently in a minor motorcycle accident with the lighter in my pocket. When I got up, the first thing I noticed on the road was the Douglass lighter. Picked it up, then my bike and once I got to safety, I light a cigarette. 2nd story. The lighter was sitting on my lap while I was running late to work. While at work. It poured down raining. It wasn't until I went on my lunch break that I realized my lighter was lying in the little grass patch, drenched. Picked it up, light a cigarette. As far as a low flame, the only time I noticed that is when I'm low on fluid. Otherwise, I agree with the 2nd review 100%. I will also be buying the gumetal/chrome one as a backup!
very well made, useful, worth the money

I am actually on this site today for the soul reason of purchasing another Douglass S field lighter. I read the only other review and I'm not sure what the problem is with his lighter. Mine has a flame that reaches at least 1/2 " above the wind screen. If he reads this I can tell him that the performance of his unit is not typical and needs to be returned for a replacement. I have a couple of other models of the Douglas line and this is the only one I would recommend.
It's a well made cigarette lighter

I mean that literally. That's about all it is good for. The flame for the most part is petty low, so the only things you can light are what you can fit inside the wind guard.

It's narrow, so you can light candles in a jar, but I don't know how long the o-ring at the base of the wick will take that before they are toasted.

It's beautifully crafted, but if you thought it would be a reliable weather proof lighter you could use for campfires and such, it will not be very good at that job. But like I said, it is very well built with excellent fit and finish. If you buy one, your grand kids can probably gripe about it too.

Also of note, there's some technique to getting it to strike a spark without it roughing up your thumb. You have to make sure the detent is engaged or you won't make sparks.
