Rollagas

Post by Xero » Wed Jan 06, 2010 11:14 pm

I currently have a vintage butane gold/burgandy lacquer rollagas as well as a really beat up gold plated one i got for $27! and it still works. I also have a palladium new-generation rollagas with the dupont-style flame adjuster on the bottom, that lighter is really tough and the finish is almost indestructible. Dunhill lighters tend to go over pretty well in crowds, the form factor is similar to a bic, and i find people have an easier time using them for the first time, compared to a dupont anyway. not sure why the width makes a difference, but people tend to hold the dupont wrong. Neither go over as easily as the vintage christian diors with a bic-like flint wheel, but hey.

here's my 3 dunhills that i currently own, the picture really doesn't do the burgundy one justice, it's probably my favorite out of the three, though i tend to use it less than the other 2 for that reason. The palladium one's finish is very durable, I also really like the new model with the ligne2-ish flame adjuster on the bottom.

love the blue one, your burgundy one looks very similar to mine, although the pattern on the flint roller is different on mine, not sure whether that indicates a different time period it was made or what. The pictures definitely don't do the burgundy ones justice, they look much better in person.

yes I agree, its sometimes hard to get the color right in pictures. I find I have good luck with sunlight. The burgundy picture was taken inside ..
