KW Automatic Lighter

The Auto-Tank lighters had cotton wadding, as most lighters, in about 1/2 of the fuel space. The bottom part, however, was a petrol tank which, of course, held a lot more fuel. There was a wicking device that would let the liquid fuel gradually be absorbed into the wadding. This resulted in a significantly longer lasting fuel supply. c. early-1930s.

KW Flip Lighter

This KW has a dual fuel tank. One tank is the tradition tank filled with wadding and wick. Below it, in the section removed for filling both tanks,is a liquid fuel tank with wick material around the fill screw which allows the liquid to gradually migrate into the wadding. This allows for a substantial amount of extra fuel and more time between fillings. Late 1930s - through 1940s. The lighter is operated by using the thumb to flip the spark wheel cover to the top and open the top at the same time as producing the spark.

KW Flip-Top Lighter

Unusual for this style lighter, this one has a liquid fuel tank to supply and supplement the tank with wadding in it so it need not be refilled so often.

KW Unusual Striker Lighter

This unusual lighter has a dual fuel tank and, more unusual is the way the striker operates. A flint strip was on the cap (you can see the empty slot) and the round collar around the wick is struck against the cap to produce the igniting spark. While the lighter itself is not branded, it is unmistakeable from the Patent.  c. 1915-1917
