    I always light with matches, Simon. Lighters are for relights only. The problem is that I can't see the effin' rim on that horn. So, I'm puff-puff-puffing on the pipe while waving the match around in front of it. I only know I've hit it when I see the flame draw in. By that time, my fingertips are usually getting toasty.

    Good golly that is a beautiful pipe. And for that price? Craziness.

    Hmmm, far be it for me to knock your technique, but I suspect the matches we get here, help. Swan Vestas (100 matches in a box!) Although they're quite short, they do have a slow burn. Try cocking the pipe sideways in your mouth, whilst lighting. That'll help too. The lighting of a pipe, should be a calm, cool & collected affair. Waving a match around like a conductors stick & burning ones fingers, will not do Anthony. One must try harder!
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Simon, the next time you go to light your pipe, close your eyes while doing so. Only then will you understand the issue. A change of matches won't help unless they come equipped with sonar and an audible ping.

    I can confirm your suspicions, Crawford.
