Victorinox Swiss Army Flame Knife with Integrated Lighter

255611733_bb820e576821

"The Swiss Flame is only available in Europe due to U.S. regulations. Not available from any U.S. retailer."

From vicfan:

The SwissFlame adds a butane gas lighter to the Climber model, while the CampFlame adds the lighter and a small screwdriver to the Camper model.

The SwissFlame and Campflame were manufactured for only a couple of years (from 2002 until 2005). They were never for sale in the United States, since the lighter was considered unsafe: it requires only a single action to start the lighter. The SwissFlame and CampFlame are considered very rare, though they are actually pretty new models."

This was a direct response to the Brunton Fire-Light - see it here: http://amzn.to/oMFDjQ

I own one - the beast will put out a windproof super-hot blazing torch of a flame using a special mix of butane and propane (the better to light at high altitude and in cold conditions). Alas, the Brunton's transparent reservoir fails to hold a fill of the liquified gasses and will cease to function in but a few days. Brunton has d/c'd this product in favor of a new design that does not have the integral light. I have my RMA, but really loved the design and the ability to carry it on a lanyard inside my shirt (warmer there in sub-zero conditions).
