Sportsman Pipe Lighter Resurrected
F.G.T. Enterprises, Inc. has brought back an old favorite of pipe smokers with the introduction of its new Sportsman Pipe Lighter.

Sportsman Pipe Lighter is a remake of the old Nimrod, with the addition of a handy compass on one end. Crafted from polished aluminum alloy, the lighter features a wind-resistant flame and is refillable with Zippo fluid. The Sportsman Pipe Lighter comes packaged in a collector's tin gift box. Suggested retail price, $24. F.G.T. Enterprises, Inc., Tampa, FL, Tel: (800) 783-3481.

The Classic Cigar Tip fits cigars with a 38 to 50 ring gauge and is available in three colors; black, mahogany, and bone. Additional colors and sizes will be introduced in the future. The company offers a 100 percent return policy for retailers; retail customers are protected by a no-risk, 30-day money-back guarantee and a five-year manufacturers warranty.

Cigar Lighter Lasts Longer
Cuban 70 cigar lighters are the first disposable lighters designed exclusively for cigar smokers. The Cuban 70 cigar lighter will last up to four times as long as normal disposable lighters and includes a heat resistant safety cap that won't get hot during the extended lighting time of a cigar. It is molded from high-impact, transparent ABS plastic, providing easy viewing of the fuel supply. The adjustable flame will light any size cigar and the Cuban 70's special blend of butane insures full cigar flavor with no chemical aftertaste. Retailers receive a free acrylic humidor with each prepack purchase of 90 Cuban 70 cigar lighters during the introductory period. Calico Brands, Inc., Home Gardens, CA, Tel: (800) LIGHTER.
