Airflam

Germany

Airflam Windproof Catalytic Lighter

Advertised as the lighter with no moving parts. The lighter was fully automatic - open the top and a flame was produced - sometimes necessary to use a wave of the hand to move some air into the chamber. The lighter worked because there was a tiny air hole in the chamber which used Methanol as fuel. A framework with platinum catalyst and fine wires is embedded in the chamber. As soon as air and Methanol vapors combine in the chamber, the catalyst heated, heating the wires, and igniting the fuel vapors. c. early 1950s this example and other models produced through the 1960s.

More InfoAltenpohl & Pilgram

Altenpohl & Pilgram Lighter

This is a double tank lighter. There is the standard cotton filled tank and an extra tank that is filled with liquid fuel and then has a wick to bleed that liquid fuel gradually into the cotton as it dries out somewhat from use. This significantly increases the fuel supply available and, therefore, the number of lights before refueling again.

This is a lighter type that could no longer be manufactured today; it is simply dangerous! If you have a finger or any part of your skin at the back of the lighter when the button is pushed to light it, the snap up action of the top, which meets the base behind itself, will give a really nasty pinch. c. mid-1930s - early 1940s.
