No but over the years I would buy them, lose them, buy another so on and so forth. Right now I own 2 or 3 brand new zippo pipe lighters in boxes.

Nah. I have a few but the fluid evaporates too fast. If I had one with the butane insert I might like it more but I'm not unhappy with my Corona Old Boys.

I used to carry my lighter in the top pocket of my greens. When the fluid leaked out in the heat "in country" it would burn my skin pretty bad. I just took to carrying it in a magazine pouch.

Do I love my Zippo enough? I hope not. :lol: I know zippos are great when it's windy but I much prefer butane.
