We highly recommend Corona flints for any flint lighter. Corona uses a high quality flint that is free of impurities, which can clog up your lighter's mechanisms. Flints of lesser quality create a "dirty" spark which can foul up your lighter. If you've used other flints, you'll find that your lighter will need much less cleaning and maintenance with Corona flints.
My Old Boy Lighter was giving me problems. Then I read that IM Corona recommends the use of Corona flints with their lighters, expressly to alleviate this problem of "inferior" flints gunking up the gas discharge. I thought, "Well, of ... Read Morecourse they are going to recommend their own product." And, not thinking it would truly help, yet knowing it couldn't hurt, I ordered some. The difference was instantaneous. It just lights better. Which is difficult to explain. Yet, I know it when I feel it. Please, use Corona flints with your Corona lighters. Read Less
I had been using Zippo and Clipper flints in my Old Boy. Even after cleaning and using Xikar Purofine fuel, the lighter was not lighting reliably. I decided to order the IM Corona brand flints and they solved the issue.
The other brands of flints I ... Read Moretried didn't seem to create as much of a spark in this lighter which was affecting its reliability. Now the Old Boy with IM Corona flints lights mostly on the first strike. Read Less
