The Executive

The Executive Table Lighter

Though a nice looking lighter, it is cheaply made. The covering, which seems to want to mimick leather, is actually a composite paper product that will virtually dissolve in water. Ironically, it is easily cleaned with Windex and a soft toothbrush, if done quickly and gently then patted with a towel to dry the surface and allowed to air dry fully; any undue pressure or excessive liquid will start to dissolve the covering! A very similar looking lighter of higher quality, slightly larger, and 2 ounces heavier was made by Daltis.
