Zippo Windproof Lighter Features As Standard:
The Zippo lighter is a true American legend and has become known worldwide for its reliability and build quality. Due to the wide range of designs which Zippo have to offer, Zippo lighters have a strong following of collectors from all over the world. The Zippo was especially popular with the Military during World War 2 and the Vietnam War and over the years, has appeared in many Hollywood films.
In its 80th anniversary year in 2012, Zippo produced its 500 millionth Zippo lighter.
The Zippo story began in Bradford, Pennsylvania USA in 1932 when George G Blaisdell noticed a friend using an Austrian-made lighter. It's design was cumbersome, required two hands to use and the outer metal casing was thin and dented easily. He decided that he could make a lighter which was stronger, lighter, easier to use and more reliable. He then began work on designing & making what is now the Zippo lighter. In 1933 the first ever Zippo lighters went on sale in America and so confident was he in its design, Mr Blaisdell introduced the Zippo Lifetime Guarantee.
The Zippo company is still a privately owned family run company, still based in Bradford USA which is now headed by the Grandson of George G Blaisdell.
From the time of their first ever lighter going on sale in 1933, Zippo have always offered their Zippo Lifetime Guarantee on all of their windproof lighters and they stand by their promise. It states that if any Zippo lighter doesn't work, then they will fix it for free for its entire lifetime. If you had a Zippo lighter from the 1940's for example and it stopped working - you could send it back to Zippo and they will fix it.
The guarantee covers mechanical repair and not cosmetic wear and tear (eg. dents / scratches & scuffs).
