Peterson Thinking Man pipe lighter

Recommended Posts

I've been using a Bic lighter or my trusty Zippo with the Zippo pipe insert (and the black can fuel).

Was used to nice Xikar triple flame lighter for my cigars, but it's a "little" hot for using with a pipe.


Was looking at the IM Corona Old Boy lighter and the Peterson Thinking Man.  Read several comments about the Old Boy having an issue with a spring giving out that controls the flame cover but that it was a nice lighter.  Others have commented on the nice feature of the larger tank of the Thinking Man and the fact that it has a magnetic cover.  I didn't need the built in tool of the Old Boy as I carry a tamper in my pocket so the idea of a larger tank was a nice bonus on the Peterson.


I ended up ordering a Thinking Man in satin finish.  Can't wait for it to come in.  Even with the better fuel, I'll sometimes get a quick "taste" of the lighter fuel with the Zippo when first lighting up and upon any relights.  Takes away from the flavor for a short time.  So hopefully the butane lighter will resolve that.
