Hi All

Currently single, so I get to buy my own valentines day present to celebrate rank consumerism.

So, my question to everyone is.

What is your current/favorite lighter and what implement of flame would everyone recommend?

I'm using a ten buck jet lighter or my soldering torch that I use at work depending on where I am. Obviously I need to shape up and get with it. So help me please

Come on baby light my fire!

I have a black label flat flame lighter. Cost a little over $100us

I mainly bought it cause I like the gadget factor and it came in a copper finish

I also have a triple flame Siglo lighter that I use a fair bit.

Both havw been faultless for 100+ uses

I'm not keen on jet lighters, don't like the charred character they can bring to the first third even if they are lit slowly. However I've had a Colibri Baumont for 8 years and it's still going strong. Not keen on the boxy look of the new version though.

Vast majority of the time I use a DuPont ligne 1 large soft flame i grabbed from eBay for £35 then restored. 40 years old and still lights amazing. Great build quality

I use a cheapie Ronson/Zippo Jetlight from Walmart. Rather spend the money on cigars or booze.

Me too

I have a Porsche design that needs fixed and haven't got around to getting it fixed yet used it twice and it stopped creating spark

St dupont maxijet or xikar tech as my go to torch flames.

Favourite lighters are my sarome psd-1 soft flames. Amazing build quality and without the fuss or upkeep of a traditional st dupont.

I own a 1000.00 usd St. DuPont but I also have a 12.00 usd Jobon.

This Jobon is the best by far I have ever used. Jet stream bi torch flame, all heavy metal construction. I have even sent one to Rob.

If I known how to upload a pic I would. I found it on eBay. Check it out. I bought 4 and gave 3 away.

I'm kind of a hoarder of lighters. I've got ones from the cheap Ronsons from walmart or walgreens but my favorite two are my Maxijet and then my colibri dual flame that is both a soft flame and a torch.

I have a drawer full of them. I think it's a side effect of smoking cigars. I have found that I like the single flame more. They are easier to control and not burn the to far up when your lighting it. I have found that most lighters are the same regardless if they are $5 or $500. They all seem to work the same. The only difference is materials and brand names. Some of the most common ones I use are the $5 Deal Extreme ones with the built in punch. That one is a dual flame but they have a good "point" for lighting. I also Vertigo torch lighter. I got it for around $25 I real like it because the "point" on the flame is the fines I have seen and it has a huge fuel tank with windows all around.

I have a pile of Xikar lighters that I never use. They don't hold as much fuel and you gotta worry about loosing an expensive lighter. I use those ones more for at home. But I also have the Xikar one with the magnet cutter on it. I sometimes take that one to herfs because it's all in one, although the magnets in it suck and they on't really stick together.

My trusty Cartier, over ten years old and has never let me down:

Also have a Dupont jet lighter and a Ligne 2 but I never use them - the flamejet feels cheap and plasticky, and the Ligne 2 just doesn't fit my hands properly, feels like a heavy Zippo.
