Prometheus lighters have always sported more traditional colors such as chrome, silver and gunmetal. The blue is a bit of a departure from the norm. Although it is just a color change, the steely blue has a retro look reminiscent of the paint on your childhood bicycle. It has a glossy mirrored finish, which is offset by the chrome metal trim. The old favorites on the lighter remain the same, such as the adjustable, wind-resistant butane flame and the fuel-monitoring window.
The new blue will be available on a number of Prometheus items including the slim Apex, the muscle-bound Hammer and its squat cousin the Xen, the Sledge and the Magma. Metallic Blue finish lighters retail between $59.95 and $125, depending, on the model.
Available at fine tobacconists.
