CAO Flathead Tabletop Lighter, Art Deco Gastank Design

CAO Flathead Tabletop Lighter!  Hands-down the coolest lighter we've ever sold.  Thiis an absolutely unique CAO Steelhorse triple jet lighter, in the shape of a motorcycle gas tank, with an art deco style base, the CAO logo printed on both sides of the tank and the Flathead apehanger handlebar motorcycle graphic on the gas cap.

The Steelhorse table top lighter works by simply pressing down on the gas tank - a partial press pops open the spring loaded gas cap, and a full press-down fires the triple burners..  The entire unit is sleek with clean lines in an art deco style.  The fuel refill nozzle and flame adjuster valve is hidden in the base.

Gas tank and gas cap is silver colored brushed stainless steel with a semi-gloss finish.  Super solid construction, and heavy in the hand.   Dimensions: 3 1/2 x 1 3/4 x 2 inches.

These CAO gastank lighters are a limited production item, will become a collectors item for fans of CAO cigars; all you bike riders; and lighter collectors as well.  Will not be available long.

Size: N/A
 
US$59.00

Brand Profile

CAO Flathead cigars are a must try for fans of full-bodied cigars.  From Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of 2015 List, regarding the #3 in the world and 95 rated CAO Flathead 660:
 

"It’s big. It’s blocky. And it has the flattest head we’ve ever seen on a premium cigar. It’s also loaded with surprisingly rich, complex tobacco.

The CAO Flathead V660 Carb is one of the bulkiest cigars in the CAO Flathead line, which is made by General Cigar Co. in Nicaragua. General inherited the entire portfolio of CAO’s preexisting brands after Swedish Match and ST Cigar Group Holdings merged in 2010. Flathead, however was created under General Cigar by Rick Rodriguez and Ed McKenna. The idea was for the cigars to resemble the engine blocks found in America’s classic hot rods, and this is reflected in the packaging as well. Each box looks like an engine and even comes with a vintage-style print of a pinup girl. There is undoubtedly a jovial aspect to the theme, but it would be a mistake to dismiss the Flathead as a novelty.

The cigar is a gutsy blend that starts with a dark Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, a Cuban-seed binder also grown in Connecticut and a combination of Nicaraguan ligero and Dominican Piloto Cubano tobacco. If Rodriguez and McKenna intended the blend to reflect hot rods and muscle cars along with the packaging, we’d say they delivered.

The name Carb 660 is named after the carburetor of a combustion engine and 660 indicates the length and ring gauge. From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather and molasses that only gain intensity as it smokes."
- Cigar Aficionado, 2016
