It seems like there are two reasons to buy a pipe lighter - to light your pipe, and then to lose it. For that reason, I won't spend a ton of money to buy a lighter, but I want one that does what I need. Forget disposable butane lighters. I've burnt myself way too often with those. Now, I found the balance between value and function - the Pipes & Cigars Pipe Lighter. This antique gold-colored lighter doesn't use a flint, so no muss and fuss. Just pull down the trigger and you're ready to go. There's a fuel window so you'll easily know when it's time to recharge and it has a pull-down tamper that can be removed for use as a pick. You get all this at a price that's hard to resist!
