Will no longer complicate life by maintaining expensive pipe lighters.

I lucked out, I used my old boy every day for 6 years with just refilling it and adding flint. It suffered a fall out of my truck and the valve cracked, it still works but I have to fill it everyday. It now sits on my shelf out of service and I only use it as a prop.

I mostly use a Zippo at home, a Bic in the car and a torch lighter (gift) at church.

I have a box of dead lighters including Corona, Dunhill, Old Boy, Sarome, just to name a few. All will operate again with repair but just not motivated to do so any longer.

Purchased 12 Clippers some two years past (refillable - fluid and flint) for under $10 and have been very pleased. I have about half left . . . not due wear but gifting to others.

I like the Clipper over a BIC since the Clipper is refillable.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!

Matches only for me. I've tried Zippos, Bics, Djeep(which I like for cigars), Old boy knock-offs, and even hemp wick.. nothing seems to get tobacco going like a match. I've used cedar spills lit with some other fire source too, and that works just as well but tends to give your bowl a woodsy flavor.

Man, I'm glad you bought that box of Clippers. You started out sounding suicidal. Where there's flame, there is light.
