Lighters - IM Corona Old Boy Pewter with Pipe Shapes
Excellent Function, Mediocre Finish
I have enjoyed this product for about five years. Functionally it is excellent and always provides a nice soft flame to light tobacco. However I am disappointed about its finish. At about four years the base and bottom of the lighter is discoloing. In researching this I was told by a lighter repair company that this lighter is copper and plated with pewter. Apparently over time the copper leaches through. I've seen this on the same product is a pipe shop in New York (new pipe in the case). I like to keep my lighters looking nice and this inherent design defect is annoying.
