I own this lighter (not from Massdrop) and love it. I don't typically use it to light a cigar but I'll use it to relight if it goes out. I don't like to use a torch for relights, as it seems to get bitter more easily that way. A soft flame will light the tobacco without re-burning the ash and making it smell and taste bad. I also get compliments on this lighter all the time. I'm in my local upscale cigar lounge very often and every time I use this lighter, without fail, someone tells me how much they love it.
Got in on a previous drop and I really like it. I did buy a case from colibri for it to protect it. Lit a cigar nicely in low wind conditions.
I got a Black/Red one of these in a previous drop and I love the function. The powder coating is not what I would call “durable”, though. Carried it in my pocket a few times and the coating started to chip off, I assume due to contact with the small key ring I carry.
Also, this thing burns through the butane really fast. I find that if I’m smoking a larger ring gauge than 46, to properly toast and light takes almost 20% of the fuel reserve. This is with the flame set just high enough that it blends into one instead of two distinct flames.
That said, I love it and I’m committing to buy another one. 😂
the gold one looks good, but anyone know how durable is the finish?

I've had mine for 9 months now and the finish has not worn at all (except for one scratch from when I stupidly threw it in my pocket with my keys). I do recommend spending the $10 extra and buying the leather carrying pouch for it. Worth mentioning is that I treat all my accessories like a baby and make sure nothing happens to them. If you are really rough with it, results will be as expected. I treat mine as a luxury item, not so much like a tool.
I did a review on this lighter earlier this year that you guys can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jddfzrJnDJ8. It was one of my newer videos so my speaking to the camera skills were still a tad on the boring side. Anyways, I love this thing but beware that is INDOOR ONLY. If you try to use this lighter in anything other than still air you will have a bad time. Aside from that it is a steal at this price. The construction is solid, the flame is perfect, and it looks gorgeous. If you want a lighter to impress your friends, this is a great choice!

Great video. Thank you. 🙏🏼
Material: Metal ? really?
FWIW ... A nice description from Cigar Aficionado: But what if, instead of one soft flame, your lighter had two? That's the concept behind Colibri's smartly designed Julius dual-flame soft lighter, which is named in honor of Colibri founder Julius Lowenthal and new for 2015. When the Julius is lit, two soft flames shoot out—one at a 90-degree angle and the other at 45 degrees—and merge to create a flame fat enough to quickly toast a thick cigar.
Any way we can get the black & blue one?
So I got mine and love this thing, but I'm on day 2 of having it and now the flint won't connect with the striker. I have the flint engaged and all, but am I missing something or is there a simple fix?
This lighter would handle a gentle zephyr--that's what "wind resistant" means. you wouldn't be smoking a cigar in a heavy wind anyway. Back in the day, as a naval officer standing watches on the bridge, my Zippo worked in some pretty heav y winds, but I was smoking cigarettes then, not cigars. This is a cigar lighter, and in the conditions under which you might be smoking cigars, it works well. For you literal-minded folks, get over it.

Ha ha, true.
But for lighters, these are fine.

Maybe a S.T DuPont 18k ?
Seriously... why is there no picture of the FLAME? Seems pretty important...

Very cool, again nice work. Check out comparison videos like this one where the accepted leader is compared to the absolute budget version, even for a college student! Often the differences are incrementally minuscule. This is a great example. $25 for a VERY acceptable sound profile. At 4:14 for example I literally prefer the Takstar sound over the Rhode and in other instances throughout the video as well. Again at 6:14 boom mounted, indoors I prefer the sound of the $25 Takstar (personal preference, sounds crisper).
But this is just one example video. There are many! https://youtu.be/p9rrr3l3yuA

Well now I'm going down a rabbit hole of different mic reviews, thank you for sharing this!
In what world is the Julius a wind resistant lighter?

We just have different opinions of what constitute wind resistance. Both your and mine are subjective opinions. Like I said I think I understood your point.
As a Floridian I can speak to this with absolute expertise. Don’t even think about arguing with my logic here.
It means that even following a Cat 5 hurricane gust; it will re-light (when there’s no wind). The gust will not have destroyed the lighter Itself.
This is is the same as a Smartphone falling in the toilet. AFTER retrieval and disinfection, it will still work. But not while inside the crapper.
Haha! This is comedy people. Calibri obviously is seriously stretching here.
Damn I would've rather had this one over the other drop.
