A Brief History of IMCO Lighters

     This legendary company opened its doors in 1907 as a button factory in Austria, founded by Julius Meister. In 1918, their first trench lighters were made from spent artillery shells used in World War I. Now, they are prized by collectors around the world. Known for its wind resistant feature, these lighters became a popular product for the military, then for the smoker and the outdoorsman. 

 Unfortunately, as of the end of June 2012, IMCO closed its doors.
