These are new, or at least new to me.

Those seem to be like the Countycomm peanut lighters, just a different shell.

The small peanut lighters can be a bit fiddly to use when your hands are cold.

having tried a number of lighters, from mini bics to a bunch of different Colibri, so far i find the peanut the easiest and most reliable of the bunch.

for $10 its worth trying, and if you find you prefer something else, it still makes a great back-up in a survival kit.

in fact, i just bought two more peanuts in bright orange for my wife who spends her days alone deep in the wilderness, horseback pushing cattle.

custom orange (and other colors) versions over at CPF can be found here

I bought my wife the split pea lighter from countycomm. It's made by Maratac. It's about half the size of the peanut lighter, made of solid stainless,and works very well. I'm getting the peanut for myself.

I own both the peanut lighter and the split pea lighter. My experience has been that the o-rings hold out for years and that they'll light on the first try after six months of storage or more. Usually when I refill them at that point they're full, or nearly so.

Back when I was a smoker I would drop a spare flint into the body of my Zippo before reinstalling the insert after refilling. I've done the same with my peanut and split pea lighters.

I've no affiliation with Countycomm/Maratac other than as a customer.

I am carrying a split pea County Comm lighter on my key ring. I have tested it a few times and it lights right up - makes me very happy.

Don't worry, Countycomm doesn't ship outside the USA. You're safe.
