Lighters: Zippo Black Matte Pipe Lighter w/ Pipe Emblem
Product Number: 001-068-0153
Though originally inspired by an early 19th-century Austrian lighter that used brass shell-casings for the main body, with an external flint and striker, the simpler and more self-contained Zippo design has become an American icon known throughout the world (along with its distinctive, opening "clink!" and smart, closing "clunk!"), and especially so by outdoorsmen and military personnel.
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.

Well, after ordering my own, and testing it the best I could, I can safely say that I never experienced either of these issues - In fact, I actually found it easier to draw the flame to the bottom of my bowl than with my Xikar Pipeline. On top of all this, the design of the insert makes it almost impossible to scorch the rim of your pipe! If you ever smoke outdoors, this is a must own - windproof, reliable and backed by Zippo's lifetime guarantee. Just buy one already, you won't regret it! Read Less
