Hi mates,

I always use matches & some rare times use butane lighters which really dont like.

Recently one of my friends showed me his "Permanent Math" which seems cool!

Does anybody used that for pipes? I guess this is a good stuff for me as a match user.

I had something similar to that 20-ish years ago. Fill it with regular zippo fluid and strike it on the flint on the side. It's basically a more dangerous version of a zippo lighter

Because when you unscrew the "match stick" you have a fairly large open well of fuel in your hand. A piece of burning wick or tobacco could fall into it. You could get careless and spill it all over yourself and go *poof*. Even if you extinguish it before putting it back inside the chamber you're still dealing with hot (and potentially smoldering) objects being inserted into flammable liquid

Until recently I was very active in hiking and UL camping/surviving. We saw those things being marketed, at us, every couple of years. They never caught on. I confess, they looked "gimmicky" to me so I never really looked into them in the first place and never really knew why they did not catch on but Mr Beardsley sure seems to give a good enough reason. I do know that, in a crowd that LOVES "new gimcracks," if they will remotely work without setting the user on fire, or otherwise embarrassing the guy who bought it, these "permanent match" doohickeys never did get a toehold.

I was always "wowed" by this lighter Bogey used...it was like a permanent match I guess. The Ronson Touch Tip. Very cool.

Bogey used another desk top lighter along these permanent match lines...I remember it being made of stone, maybe granite. I'm looking for it online but no luck so far.

I had some years ago also which were like the square one pictured above. Were made of plastic and not good for a pipe. The match was too short for useful pipe lighting. Was a pain to try using it.

Russians usually prefer Ronsonol over Zippo fluid. Me, too. This guy regularly uses Ronsonol when he tests products. I don't know why he opted for Zippo for this test.



I think he's saying, "super match," not, "super much." Either way, here's one vote in favor.
