... I only know one trick with a Zippo, but i can never do it consistently... The one were you lift your leg up, whip your arm down and flipping the top of the lighter, then bringing it back up and hitting the wheel with your leg, lighting it

Had it 3 times now and managed to get a blurry pic lol you'v got 2 keep your hand realy steady or it just drops back down.

Think iv worked it out though if u bend the wick towards the lid and hold it down at an angle when you light it theres like a circle about halfway up the blue flame you just got to turn it towards the ground slowly and it breaks away from the wick and rises up

Its about the angle you have it at when you light it. Bend the wick over towards the lid when its open, then light the lighter with it tilted down a bit on the side without the hinge. If youve got the right angle the flame splits away and if you slowly put the lighter straight the flame rises up.

Think that makes sense
