Remember you will always need a knife and fire to survive in the wilderness.
After numerous responses and requests with the Standard Peanut and Split Pea Lighters our staff members wondered what could be done to make it better. The answer is make it bigger and also increase the size of the spark wheel for even easier use with and without gloves. These two changes make a dramatic difference in extended run time and versatility of use in any condition. The XL Peanut Lighter is also perfect for extended trips where you will need more than a few days of firestarting.
Here's what we came up with to improve it:
Lights first time every time. Even if I don't pick it up for a month or more. Awesome.
Great fit and finish, stays securely together and actually keeps fluid if left closed, more than I can say for previous versions from other brands. Overall very well made product that I'm very happy with
I've EDC'd a Zippo for the past two decades and although the flip-open convenience was nice, having to refill it every other week due to evaporation was annoying. I received the Titanium Peanut XL for Christmas in 2017, and today (01NOV2018) I refilled it for either the second – or possibly first – time since I began carrying it. The Peanut XL is cylindrical and wider than a Zippo, and I originally intended to only keep it in my get-home bag since I thought it would feel awkward in my pocket. It turns out that I don't even notice it in the cargo or cell phone pockets on my pants, and it has completely replaced my Zippo. The Peanut XL is perfect as it is. The only change I would like to see to the other Peanut lighters is to make them all with an XL-style cap instead of the tiny hole with the split-ring through it. I hope Maratac never stops making this lighter!
This is my second large ti peanut lighter because I like them so much...great lighter, well made, durable, it will last a lifetime I'm sure...
