More InfoHahway / HW

Hahway Semi-Automatic Lighter

Patented in 1914, Hahways were produced prior to the date of patent issuance. Many people wonder about the little holes in the top; they are for changing flint. Push a needle through the holes with the lighter closed; Open the lighter; The flint retaining spring is now trapped by the pin and flint may be easily changed. Well, not 'easily', but it does help; these weren't really mode for a modern, round flint but a new flint will work just fine once you get it in place.

Henry W. Maybaum

Philadelphia, PA

Reliable Pocket Lamp

This is one of the earliest pocket lighters - almost a "pre-lighter", if you consider it in terms of what we now think of as a lighter. c. early 1890s

This was a semi-automatic amorce (literally, "blasting") cap lighter - the amorce cap being used for ignition. Cap pistol caps can still be used by modifying them for this type lighter. The caps were spooled onto the bottom post (in one of the additional pictures) and fed through the top where they were ignited. A wick came out of a fuel chamber which used kerosene, gasoline, or naptha as fuel (lighter fluid, today, but there was no such thing at that time). Somewhat similar models were made at the time by Koopman's Magic Pocket Lamp and Little Gem.
