I learned, at a young age, to let the taste burn off before applying the Zippo to a cigarette or pipe.

That said, I use what's near at hand, Zippo, Bic, matches, my Peterson, a smoldering stick, a lighter borrowed from the guy next to me.

Why? I enjoy the nicotine and the tobacco needs to be ignited. It all seems so obvious to me.

Zippo is my personal favorite lighter of all time. My first girlfriend bought me a Led Zeppelin one for Christmas one year in high school. LOVE the look and tactile feel of them. For a pipe, I prefer butane. I can smell a zippo across the room. I’ll be honest, I have yet to ever try a zippo on a pipe. I use a kiribi old boy style pipe lighter. Love it, but it’s almost like it’s the opposite of wind proof.

they're great with the pipe inserts. Easy to use and burns cooler then a bic. Never used a Kiribi I try not to spend that much on something that can fall out of ones pocket :)

I have an IM Corona Old Boy, because I wanted a good lighter I could control the flame size on.

SPC also sold me on it!

SPC has a deal with the lighters, if you buy it through them, after the two year warranty runs out, they cover it there, so it’s covered for life.

I only smoke indoors and the deal seemed to good to pass up. :)
