    I watch old movies - it's always stick matches - the big ones - like the old Diamond brand, you can still get them at grocery stores.

    as for flying with lighters -
    PER CURRENT TSA:
    Common Lighters - Lighters without fuel are permitted in checked baggage. Lighters with fuel are prohibited in checked baggage, unless they adhere to the Department of Transportation (DOT) exemption, which allows up to two fueled lighters if properly enclosed in a DOT approved case. If you are uncertain as to whether your lighter is prohibited, please leave it at home. OK X
    Torch Lighters - Torch lighters create a thin, needle-like flame that is hotter (reaching 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit) and more intense than those from common lighters. Torch lighters are often used for pipes and cigars, and maintain a consistent stream of air-propelled fire regardless of the angle at which it is held. Torch lighters continue to be banned. X X
    Strike-anywhere Matches - One book of safety (non-strike anywhere) matches are permitted as carry-on items, but all matches are prohibited in checked baggage.

    In other words - you cannot carry on any lighter - but you CAN carry on a book of matches to light your shoes or underwear on fire!

    THESE CANNOT BE CARRIED ON OR IN CHECKED BAGGAGE:
    Blasting Caps X X
    Dynamite X X
    Fireworks X X
    Flares (in any form) X X
    Hand Grenades X X
    Plastic Explosives X X
    Realistic Replicas of Explosives X X

    REPEAT - ABSOLUTELY NO HAND GRENADES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!P

    Yup, i love my zippo. A little advice for those who can't find the pipe version, simply send in ANY zippo to the repair service, with a note saying you want a pipe insert. They will give your zippo a tune up(check the hinge, wick, flint, ect), and send it back with BOTH your regular insert, and the pipe insert 100% FREE. It will probably take a few weeks, but it's a free pipe insert.

    Are there any types of matches or lighters to stay away from that could negatively impact the tobacco? I have heard of this but am slightly skeptic, possibly because I may not be able to recognize the affect.

    Torch lighters are to be avoided, as they scorch the tobacco far beyond what is needed, and also burns the snot out of the pipe if you're not extremely careful.

    Some say zippos leave an aftertaste, but, as you can see, for many this is not an issue.

    I swear I keep putting this in these type of threads but no one ever looks at this lighter. IMO, it is the best pipe lighter out there. NIMROD. Can only be purchased from eBay (eeee baaaay). I love it because you don't have to tilt the lighter to force the flame to go into the pipe. And they can be purchased from under $30.

    I had one circa 1978ish. Wish it would reappear in some of the old boxes I'm going through. That was a great little lighter.
