Pipe Lighters

Lighting a pipe is not something that is as easy as other forms of smoking. It is a practice that requires some patience, as it can be a process. After you have your pipe packed and ready to go, which is a process in and of itself, you will need to use your lighter to start what is sometimes called a “false light” or a “charring light.” This first light is used to help get rid of any excess moisture which can put your light out, and to create a smooth area for the full light. While you are doing the charring light, you will be taking a few puffs on the pipe in order to make sure you have a clean pull. Sometimes during this process, some tobacco will unravel and shift around. This is fine and will be fixed in a moment. 

 

After this is done, you will let the charring light go out and then prepare to make sure your area is smooth and ready for the real light. You need to tamp the tobacco down to make sure it is even with the top of the bowl. Using your tamper, apply very gentle pressure to smooth out the tobacco and return it to its pre-charring light level. Finally you will get to the “real light” by igniting your lighter and moving it in a circular motion around the surface of the tobacco. Make sure you cover the entire surface to have an even burn.


If you’re worried about what lighter to use, Zippo has you covered. Using their pipe lighter insert, you will be able to have a lighter that pulls great for your pipes. Once you have this insert, you will be able to select from the wide, almost limitless variety of decorative cases that will allow you to showcase your style and personality. You should be able to find something you like and something that works great for you.
