If the Xikar Pipeline has a familiar look, you're not mistaken. This is a classic design for a pipe lighter, and it uses the reliable flint/sparkwheel ignition method. The side-firing soft flame is ideal for a pipe enthusiast - keeping the flame away from the fingers, and soft enough to protect the pipe. It also has a pull-down tamper/pull-out pick. Best of all, this dependable lighter is very reasonably priced.
