A pipe lighter has a directed flame.
Pipe lighters come in a variety of designs. Some have built-in tapers. Most have the flame oriented to fire sideways from the lighter for directional control. The Tobacco Leaf carries a full complement of the premier pipe lighter, the Corona Old Boy.
A cigar lighter has a fatter flame width.
Some cigar smokers prefer using matches. It's a personal choice that works either way. The tobacco Leaf carries a variety of torch lighters with high-intensity flames, ideal for toasting a fine cigar quickly.
This enables the cigar smoker to light the cigar more evenly. The nice thing about using a lighter is that you're able to hold the cigar in one hand and the lighter in the other.
