My go-to pipeweed ignition system is a Zippo. I have carried one since I was a teen. If I see one at a yard sale, tag sale, or auction, I'll pick it up if it's not too expensive.

So in the last bombing run, I send the victim a brushed antique silver Zippo. I thought it was the best-looking lighter I've seen in a long time. Ever since then I have been wanting a new one. So a couple of weeks ago I bought a couple of them.

The Patriots lighter is my everyday lighter. I've had it since 2002. Of course, I had to buy a pipe light and swap the inserts out to use as a pipe lighter. The PBR lighter is new, and I will have to swap out inserts as well to use it as a pipe lighter. Notice the donor lighter next to it. For some dumb reason, I bought 2 of the PBR lighters. I just didn't show Both of them

I'm a Zippo guy too. I only have about three though. They all have pipe inserts which I find to be some of the best pipe lighters I've ever used. None of my pipes are charred on the top lip.

I'll have to do a lineup. Try to remember later today. My favorite is a real, nearly all copper, issue from Marlboro. Does not say Marlboro. But it was some offering they did. I think it's the only real copper model they did. Others are copper coated.

My daily carry lighter is a brass Zippo with a butane pipe lighter insert.  It used to be engraved with my initials and OTSLS (The Old Tweed Sporting and Literary Society, a very loosely organized (?) bunch of golfing/fishing/shooting/drinking/smoking buddies and other ne're-do-wells) but the engraving wore off long ago.  I got tired of the lighter going dry every few days so I went to butane, but I find those inserts don't last all that long; anyone else have that problem?  I use good fuel it seems that over time they just don't hold up.  My problem seems to be that eventually they don't take or hold a full charge; maybe it's just me.  Also, the price to send them back under the "no proof warranty" is almost as much as a new insert Evil or Very Mad !
