What I'm thinking is a staff with ends covered in the stuff that strike-anywhere matches use (phosphor?). You could then light your staff by striking on the ground (well concrete/tarmac anyway - grass probably wouldn't work!). As well as looking good it'd be a way to start with non-fire and only light part way through.
A couple of problems I can see:
1) Replacement of the ends. Would an arrangement to hold several matches which can just be replaced work?
2) How would the ends react to being dipped in fuel? Would they still strike properly?
