Smoking

Does anyone know of a brand of fag-lighter that would be suitable for ribsters?
Ideally what I would like to get is "Zippo" type, but one that works on gas rather than petrol.
Any recommendations (apart from the obvious)?

Swiss Army make one. Got a huge army type knife and the lighter attached in the holster in Switzerland though
Don't know if they do this in the UK (The knife - I think - is illegal in the UK but is DEFFINATELY legal everywhere else in Europe )

lighters

Brian

I,ve got some windproof/waterproof lighters in the shop -- they are good, all plastic.

i smoke to much probably, and use one all the time, they are a bit thirsty, but keep a tin at home, and you will be ok.

5.99 -- if you want to try one, reply of pm me with your address and will put one in the post to you tomorrow.

cheers

Pete
