Bob P. wrote to reiterate one of SurvivalBlog’s long-standing recommendations: “Zippo Lighters are American-made. They are manufactured by the Zippo Manufacturing Co. in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Even though I don’t smoke I always kept a Zippo lighter handy since I was in the Army in the 1960s.  I keep one in my BOB and one in my ready pack in my pickup.  Zippos will burn just about any fuel and some of my Army buddies used to refill their Zippos and similar wind proof lighters by dunking them in the gas tanks of gasoline-powered equipment. (Don’t use diesel!)  They always worked and the lower the octane of the fuel the better. They seem to be more reliable, wind proof and work better than butane lighters in cold weather. We always keep extra flints in the bottom, under the cotton packing.”
