In 1918, After the first world war, they began producing petrol lighters. The busniss was a success and IMCO made millions of lighters until 2012. IMCO is known around the world for their high quality. They always work.
“IMCO®, the World’s Supreme Lighter since 1918!”
The IMCO Streamline 6800 was introduced in the 1950s, after the IMCO Triplex “Super 6700”. Like its name suggests, the Streamline is thinner and sleeker than the Triplex. Reliable and very well made, these lighters will probably outlive you. The fuel tank can be withdrawn from the lighter after being ignited, so it’s easier to light a (tobacco) pipe.
