For smoking, or utility, what is your fire maker of choice?

I'll set a good example, and show mine.



Zippo - never lets me down.

These matches really suck. I got them at a gun show and you can't even light them on the box.

I f'ing lost my last one turkey or elk hunting I can't remember which....I had a flat black one...worked perfectly but have net to get a new one. Was thinking about getting a WWII repo one they have or just another black one. I kind of want something cool though.

I'm too lazy to look for a pic, but I used to have one that looked like three sticks of dynamite.

I would post a pic of my Jim Beam Zippo, but I'm too lazy to look for it to even take a pic.

Black Crackle Zippo with a
Z-Plus brand Butane insert.
In the woods butane is the way to go.

I usually go for those oval Bic lighters. I tear off the child safety over the wheel and I'm ready to go. I dont smoke, so I use lighters just to light fireworks off, zippos suck balls trying to light anything but a cig. with, they are cool though.

I'm sold on zippos - the mistique, the utter reliability, the fact that my shamrock zippo gets the ladies naked - no lie.

However, I keep strike anywhere matches, bics, and a jet butane lighter lying around for emergencies and backups.

I actually sign up for a photobucket account, for this particular reason, so I can share with everyone, and nobody posts a pic of their damn lighter?!?!

I don't have a (nice) lighter... YET. This thread has inspired me, I just ordered a Zippo in matte black, no logo. Who knows why I don't have one already, being the pyromaniac I am.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 9:44:05 PM EDT
Ok so anyone have any good ideas on a cool zippo, should i just get another black one or something cool...anyone.... thedoc what you say?

i have 2 zippo lighters.
antique brass.
one i have had since a teen
other is new this year.
bought the new one so i could send the old one to zippo for repair,,,need to get around to doing that....

Here's my current Zippo:




It's OK, I guess. Gift. It's probably the 15th or 16th I've owned, so I kinda quit worrying about a cool one. I do have an "American Embassy-Riyadh, Saudi Arabia" one, but the pic with the Saudi and US flags started wearing off so I quit carrying it. Can't get another one of those too easy.

Always with a few wraps of tape, cause you never know...

I have no idea who made it. I got it from my great-grandfather, an army surgeon. It's marked with a "US" and Medical Corps insignia.

It's machined tubular brass, works just like a zippo, uses their fuel/flints, and has a little brass cap on a chain.


My grandad carried it everywhere along with a .41 Long Colt revolver. Got that too.
