Why Clipper Lighters?
Several factors play into why Clipper lighters are superior to their competitors. First, they are made with the highest quality raw materials and are made to withstand the test of time. Clipper lighters are refillable and reflintable, making them a smart investment. They make flint, electronic and metal lighters to fit every smoker's needs and preferences.
Clipper Lighters appeal to "roll your own' smokers because of their unique removable flint system that assists in packing tobacco. The design of the lighter also allows pipe smokers to use without being burned (major plus!) They also manufacture a variety of accessories including the gas and lighter fluid to refill. Their gas is universal and has less impurities than the other guys, making it a prime choice. Clipper manufactures over 450 million units a year, and is arguably the most sought after lighter on the market.
If you're looking for a reliable and affordable lighter, Clipper is the only choice. No one compares to the innovative technology, smooth look and sheer quality. For smokers and collectors alike, this lighter is LEGIT!
