A spark lighter also called a flint lighter or a flint spark lighter is a type of lighter that is used to safely light a gaseous fuel to start a flame. These kinds of lighters are ideal for lighting bunsen burners and oxyacetylene welding torches. A spark lighter works by rapidly rubbing a small piece of ferrocerium, a man-made metallic material that gives off hot sparks, upon the sharp edge of any item that is harder than the rod.
