Default Pipe lighter

Guys, need your expertise.

I've been enjoying the pipe more and more, but i'm tired of trying to get it lit on those windy days with wood matches.

Could you guys recommend me a fine pipe lighter?

Thanks

I know two solutions I have tried and liked, but do not own. First the Colibri Connaught II. It's a little spendy at $50 but it felt solid. I have only used one on two occasions. Also a cheaper solution is a zippo butane insert from amazon. Sorry don't know which brand it was but I'll follow up when I get back to work. I have a coworker who uses this daily. I don't smoke pipe often but they were both great solutions when I couldn't get matches to work in windy Colorado Springs.

Old Boy pipe lighter. Expensive, but a one time purchase.

A shameful admission;

I've owned at least one of each of the usual suspects. Upon becoming old, lazy and crotchety, I've settled on Bics, yes, bics.

XIKAR Resource lighter is what I use. Has all your pipe tools built in and I think has a great price. This is a soft flame and works great.

They also have a torch called Pipeline but I have never tried it. I like the soft flame or matches for my pipe. I have never tried any others.

I have owned mine for over 20 years and it works flawlessly. Excellent pipe equipment. Got one for my son a year ago and cannot tell the difference (other than mine has a few scratches on it. I did send it in once, but it was a while back and I do not remember why. They fixed and sent it back to me, I only paid my postage to them.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

For a good, refillable little pipe lighter under $20, look at Smoking Pipes at the IMCO pipe lighter. Have two over a yes\ar old, going strong!

I fully agree. I own a tortoise lacquer & polished gold finish for pipes, and a triple torch Colibri for my cigars. Your mileage may vary, they are worth every penny for me.

I ordered a zippo and a butane insert. The zippo has arrived, but I'm still waiting on the insert. I decided to try the regular zippo wick insert, since I've read some people use them. Terrible mistake. All I taste is lighter fluid. Yuck.

Sorry to hear you didn't like your New Zippo as a Pipe lighter. I have 2 Zippo's and love them. One is a Pipe lighter with a hole made to let you use it side ways with a little pipe diagram on the case. The other one is just the old standard Zippo. I have used them both to light my pipes and I haven't ever had an issue with fluid taste. What type of fluid are you using? I only use Zippo in my pipe one and I have used both Zippo and Ronsonol fluid again haven't had any odd taste from them.

I use either a Zippo pipe lighter, or use it with a butane insert.
I never got a funky taste with the lighter fluid. I just never used it enough. I had to refill it almost every time I smoked.

Man, all I taste is zippo fluid. My butane insert came in DOA. I bought a couple of the IMCO G77r and have been happy with those. They get the job done.
