  1. 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.
