The Adonis model was firstly introduced after WWII in 1947, as a petrol lighter. There were over 45 variations. The Ronson Adonis lighter is smaller model compared to the Varaflame line, and its streamlined design is a bit thinner, giving it a sleaker look than the Varaflames. This name was carried over to the later butane version. A few design variations are uncommon and rare, like the lizard model.
The Cadet Adonis came with the same system as the Zippo, where the outer cover is pulled off the body to fill petrol and to change flint. It's a bit thicker than the regular Adonis, and thereby holds more fuel.
Hight: 1-3/4" (44 mm).
