Magnets, among many things, keep our money secure (ATM card strips), our information organized (computer hard drives) and, now, with Blazer's Optimus lighter, our cigars more enjoyable.
The Optimus combines a reliable butane flamer with a guillotine-style cigar cutter in a stainless steel alloy body. Whereas two-in-one lighters sometimes suffer from poor design that makes operating the cutter difficult, Blazer's Optimus features a rather clever innovation.
The cutter part of the Optimus attaches and detaches from the lighter body by means of a powerful magnet. The smoker can simply pop off the 46 ring gauge, Japanese stainless steel cutter, cut the cigar and then place it back on the lighter.
This design is a cut above other two-in-one lighters because the hands don't have to compete with the lighter body.
The lighter's flame is adjustable and there is also a window on the back of the body that shows how much fluid is in reserve.
The Optimus lighter retails for the suggested price of $45 and comes in silver, gun metal and black. It is available at fine tobacco shops everywhere.
