****The plating shop did a poor job anodizing the latest batch of matte red bleed tools. They function properly but the anodization is not perfect. So to run out the current inventory of them, I have discounted them to $12.00****
I don’t know how many butane lighters that I use to throw away because they stopped working, then one day while at a friends house, I noticed he was sticking something in the bottom of his lighter and some gas came out. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was bleeding the air out. He said if you don’t bleed the air out of your butane lighter, you can never get the lighter full of fuel again. Well, that was a long long time ago.
