I received a package in the mail without a card or a name. It was I think an old fashioned Cape Cod lighter, I may have posted something about a year ago referring to the Cape Cod lighter as the greatest invention to start a fire since the magnifying glass and the two sticks rubbing together.

Well this one is made of copper and will take a little work to get going. The main problem will be that generally the lighter has a sandstone on a wire rope to absorb the kerosene and keep the flame going until the wood catches. This one has a kind of rag on the end and maybe just a little bit of the Molotov cocktail quality to it. Maybe someone was sending me a message!

So I think I may keep it as a decorative copper antique and find a good place to display it. This is what it looks like, any ideas?
