Pipe Lighter Recommendations?

I have a Zippo pipe lighter, but it doesn't seem to work as well as using matches or simply using a Bic. Yes, I know, using a Bic lighter is almost sacrilege. But it works well.

What do you guys use?

I been using a Nimrod pipe lighter for years. Never had any problem with it. Check eBay.

I'm looking at a highly recommended Xikar.

With that said, the Thunderbird Zippo insert is nicely priced and highly praised.

You can't go wrong with either one. I also have a Vector pipe lighter and use it a lot. It's been very dependable.

I use Bic most of the time. Works great. I also use Zippo pipe lighter especially under breezy conditions. I am currently looking at Kiribi pipe lighters. I hear they work great.

Kiribi Kabuto is a great lighter especially for the money. Lights every time and has a huge tank. The Thunderbird zippo insert works well but the tank is small.
