Apparently I was doing everything wrong. Here's what I've gleaned from your advise:

1. Trim Zippo's wick.
2. Hold Zippo vertically while lighting up.
3. RZFM.
4. Let Zippo burn a while.
5. Give Zippo a finger-flick and tell it to calm down.
6. Keep Zippo away from tobacco.
7. Replace Zippo' s soul with a butane implant.

I will be sure to relate these pearls to my brother, who is the new owner of the lighter.

I tried zippo. It ruined the taste and gave me a headache every time. I've tried using alcohol fuel instead and it was better but it evaporated much quicker.

The smell of lighter fuel can get into your nose and end up part of the first part of the bowl you are smoking just by its fragrance. I mostly use matches, but even the sulphur off those has a pretty strong scent, so I let that burn away before applying the match to the pipe. It depends how fussy you are. Some folks don't care and enjoy a little fuel, butane, or sulphur with their Virginia/Perique.

They are nice to use around the house...
I just bought a spool of beeswaxed hemp string and built my own. The ball of string should last a lifetime.
