I've always had good luck with Berz-O-Matic propane torches.  They come with 
a fool-proof flint & steel igniter that has never failed me.  I wore one out 
in 25 years and the second one is still going strong after 10 more years.  I 
bought mine in a kit that includes a big soldering tip that slips over the 
end of the torch jet.  I think you can still get these at any home 
improvement center.
