This slender industrial-looking pocket lighter was likely manufactured in the United States during the 1940s. The fuel screw is marked Sobeck Evr-Lite, there's no other identifying info on the lighter. Machined from solid aluminum, this lighter features a flip-up snuffer with a side mounted thumbwheel. Lift up the snuffer to expose the wick and spin the side-mounted thumb wheel clockwise to light. Flip the snuffer closed with your finger to extinguish the flame. The flint chamber is accessed by removing the spring loaded hex screw behind the file wheel. Fuel is added from the base screw, which includes a handy accessory: a mini hex driver mounted to it that fits the flint chamber screw (see photo #5).

This aluminum Evr-Lite doesn't look to have been regularly used and has been returned to excellent working condition. I've unblocked the flint chamber, cleaned old flint debris from the mechanism, trimmed/tested its original wick, and installed a new fuel screw washer to ensure this vintage block lighter lights reliably for regular use or display. It will be shipped with a new flint and without fluid. I've hand-polished the aluminum exterior to a mirror-like finish and provided high-quality photos to offer the best preview of this Evr-Lite's condition. My studio lighting accentuates minor surface imperfections and fingerprints in the polished aluminum finish. These are much subtler when viewing this piece under normal lighting conditions. Simply put - this lighter looks even nicer in person than my photos show here. Please take a look and feel free to ask any questions.
