These lighters were most commonly made after World War 2 when aluminum was easy to get and brass was still in extremely short supply. There are other lighters that are very similar, but they were arbitrarily left out of this collection as these are simpler and obviously machined from aluminum blocks while others are more complex.

Gesch Aluminum Table Lighter On Wheels

Sharpo Aluminum Block Lighter - Josephson & Sharp

The 'Automatic' version of this lighter is very unusual. First, not too many aluminum block lighters were automatic. Even more interesting is the mechanism for opening the top: when the side roller is pushed, as though to strike the flint, it moves back just enough to release a catch allowing the top to spring open; in the same motion one can turn the wheel, generating the spark that lights the lighter. This is especially handy because no lighter always lights. Most semi-automatics (as this really is) will then require closing the lighter to try again. With this method, one just turns the spark wheel again - no need to close the top.

Nordad Aluminum Block Lighter

This company went a bit overboard on drilling holes in this uniquely shaped lighter. There are 2 holes for filling in the bottom and one on the front - and it has a spare flint capsule on it - something seldom seen in aluminum block lighters. c. late 1940s - early 1950s
