The Zippo pipe lighter insert is made to the same high quality standards as a Zippo windproof lighter, but designed for the special needs of pipe smokers. Pipe lighter insert allows user to direct and draw the yellow flame downward without scorching the pipe. The result: perfectly lit tobacco, with no damage to the pipe.
The chimney cap of the pipe lighter insert is removable. Just slip your thumbnail under the edge at either end and lift. This allows easier access to the wick for trimming and replacement.
