Lighters: Zippo Black Crackle Pipe Lighter
Product Number: 001-068-0148
In recent years, Zippo has seen to adapt their unchanged-for-generations lighter design to make something a good deal more efficient for lighting up a pipe. Initially released as an insert, then as complete lighters, this newer model features a few simple, but very useful changes. Namely, both sides of the fire-spout have been opened up, and a removable plate with a much smaller hole has been added up top. Held vertical, the flame rises through the latter, while the former provide oxygen, operating much the same as a traditional Zippo. Held sideways, however, and their roles reverse - and it's by holding the lighter above your bowl in this manner, that giving the pipe a few puffs will draw the flame down to gently light your tobacco.
