    The Xikar Tech can be had for $20 or so. Nice little torch lighter with a lifetime warranty.

    Edit a couple posts below. Torch and pipe = not good.

    My bad, I forgot this was in the pipe side. A torch is not recommended. Zippo's are pretty fail safe.

    My Zippo pipe lighter is hands down the best pipe accessory I've bought excluding pipe cleaners. It has the classic look, feel, and "snick" of a Zippo and the design makes lighting easy and foolproof. No longer will I scorch the rim of my pipes trying to get a good light!

    XIKAR Resource Pipe Lighter Review


    I agree with this review and the lighter can be found for less with a little research. Lifetime warranty, hard to beat.

    I agree with the +1 on matches. They can't be beat.

    However, I think the Xikar Pipeline is about as low as I would go pricewise and qualitywise. I say this, having had a terrible experience with the Nibo pipe lighter. Broke the day I got it, and so did its replacement. Crap, crap, crap!

    The BIG problem with this lighter though is the little knife on it. Airport security would confiscate it in a heartbeat. IMO, spend the money on an IM Corona Old Boy. Best damned lighter I've ever had. It ain't a budget lighter though.

    Really? Well it has been a while since I flew commercial... My last few flights were on flat grey jobs that started with "C" and ended with a number...

    I gotta agree about the IM Corona. The way I see it is that if I use it for 25 years (doable from what I've heard) it runs about $4.00/year. Less than a pair of Bics but the initial outlay is a little steep.

    Josh is wise. First, because he's a squid.

    Seriously, I really like my zippo. Cheap and easy to maintain, and I no longer scorch my pipe rims.
