Might Stick Around

If I had the money, I would have an Old Boy. I don't. My zippo pipe lighter and bics work just fine.
Agreed.Another important aspect is the butane regardless of which lighter you choose. I switched to the high performance butane several years ago. What a huge difference it makes. I buy Xikar, I think there are other brands.
Yeah, I would have to agree, about some being lemony. Which is unfortunate because I really like the Pipemaster.The Pipemaster is the he only one I'd consider at this point. Always had my eye on one..
Buddy in pipe club has one and I always pick it up and play with it when he brings it.
Says he's never had a problem in a couple years - and it always lights first try for me.
I guess some are just lemons, or lemony.
This is very true. I had more than one lighter get clogged when using Ronson fuel. I find that Colibri works well, except for some reason one lighter works better with Xikar's high altitude formula.Another important aspect is the butane regardless of which lighter you choose.

I have a Kiribi as well, and never use it. The screws always loosen and make it feel like it’ll fall apart. I’d prefer a bic over it.I tried - I really did. I liked the idea of a fancy lighter.
Kiribi ruined it for me.
Anyone want a Kiribi Kabuto?
I'll trade it for a tin of decent tobacco.
I have an Old Boy i really like it, 75% of the time grab a cheap chinese Scripto knockoff from Amazon, like $12 for a "block of 24" you know display stand. They make fire, that's all i need them to do. If you wanna splurge a little bit to be happy / relax time invest in a couple tins of tobacco you wouldn't normally spend the money on and get more enjoyment out of the investment. YMMVI wouldn’t say money is tight per se..but that darn mortgage..car payment…kid’s hockey…well life….
But everyone needs something to relax right…I work a stressful job in Corrections and I really like to relax with my pipe in the evening or on a day off in the morning…but frustrated with zippos always having to refill and figure if a Corona does the job well it will make the experience better…but wondering do they actually work well and are they worth it.,.? If I pay the cash and they are just a expense paperweight?
Considering that the Old Boy is a knockoff, would that not make it cheap luxury comparatively speaking?Like, if you want to be luxury, then be luxury. Cheap "luxury" doesn't work when much cheaper non-luxury has better build quality.
