Review is for a XIKAR Scribe Pipe Lighters~Chrome..I'm enjoying this new pipe lighter; adding to an IM Old Boy, and many Zippo lighters ;-)
The Scribe lighter has a good solid feel with some weight to her. I wish the butane tank was larger, you do go through a full-tank "fast", but does have a tank window. Also enjoy the top dial for adjusting the flame, very easy to dial-in desired results. The angled flame is perfect for spark'in up the bowl and with the pen-like design, keeps hand a good distance from flame and gives a clear sight to bowl/bacci (especially in the early AM when I still only have one eye open, at least until the coffee and Lady Nic "kick-in"
My order of preference;
1. IM Old Boy ( Nothing I have used comes close, but it does come at a price; $100-$160)
2. Xikar Scribe ( A nice choice and you can find them for around $29.00 w/lifetime warranty)
3. Zippo ( Solid design, enjoy using them and you can score one for under $20.00)
I hope this review helps anyone thinking about getting a Scribe
