What kind of lighter is this and where can I find one? Here are a couple of pictures. My brother got this lighter as a gift years ago and I've always wanted one. Anyone know where I might be able to find one. My brother always refers to it as a "miners lighter" and on the bottom it says; IMCO TRIPLEX SUPER austria 6700

Did you try googling?

IMCO TRIPLEX SUPER austria 6700 gives me 99 hits.

I picked one up for $5 at Restoration Hardware a few years ago. I don't know if they still carry them.

I've heard them referred to as "Trench Lighters."

My bad. A few months ago I spent days looking all over the internet for one. I was just at my brothers house and took those pictures. When I was looking before I didn't have what it said on the bottom, and I didn't even think to look again once I had what it said as I had already looked months ago with no good results.

2nding Restoration Hardware.

I got one from there sometime in 1999. I doubt Rest. Hardware sells them anymore.
