I accidentally bought this old refurbished Nimrod Commander pipe lighter. Didn't expect to win even though I likely piad more than it's worth. A new zippo would cost just a couple bucks more. But something about it struck me. Pretty cool that it's probably about 55-60 years old.
Seems the best known Nimrod model was the other little pull and push tube lighter. From what I read the commander was made before Zippo introduced their pipe lighter insert.
Anyway, it can't be any worse than some of the other lighters I've bought and then abandoned when they stop working right.
Anyone have or had one of these Nimrod Commanders?
