Got A Light?

Masquerading as a giant lighter, Fred Conlon's one-of-kind tiki torch is handmade from reclaimed fuel and water canisters used by the army from WWII through the Vietnam War. Each can has a different color top, which served as a specific label: red (kerosene), blue (water), yellow (diesel) and green (gas). And keep in mind, these cans have seen a lot in their lifetime, so please expect dents, dings and scratches.Sorry, no choice of color. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Safety and Use: Fill the included fuel canister with citronella fuel oil. Never use gasoline, kerosene or any other flammable fuel. Allow wick to become completely saturated with oil before lighting. Wick should be about 2 inches above the top of the fuel canister. Place fuel canister into the top of torch, light the wick, then place the torch in a safe location - and out of the reach of children. Allow torch to completely cool before handling. Handmade in Utah.
