Zippo Pipe Lighter

How the hell do you use these?? Anything i try just blows the flame outside the wrongside of the Chimney device. No where nere the pipe or tobacco. Any thoughts on what im Doing wrong??
I can only feel sorry for people who choose not to smoke. They are missing one of lifes great pleasures

I thought the trick to these lighters was to place the opening in the "chimney" directly over the bowl of the pipe and when you pull in the flame will light the tobacco.

It seems awkward, but give it a try.
Smoke from cigar = Good

Smoke from old oily rags = Not good

That is the idea. Hold the lighter sideways so the flame is right over the bowl and pull it down as you draw. That being said I don't use my zippo any more, as the initial lighting tends to be accompanied by a hinted taste of the fuel. I stick to wood matches and butane lighters.
