Zippo Lighter Flints
Product Code: Z2429Handy little pack of 6 replacement flints for your Zippo lighter. Why not buy two packs whilst you're at it?
Read on to find out more about Zippo lighters and why we like them.
Zippo was created in 1932 by George Blaisdell, an oilman who watched a friend struggling to light a woman’s cigarette on a breezy day. In the small town of Bradford, Philadelphia, Blaisdell tinkered away, and built a small chimney around a wick to produce a windproof lighter. He gave it the famous lifetime guarantee and called the company Zippo.
Zippo's first location was a small machine shop on the second floor of the Richerson & Pryde garage on Bolyston Street in downtown Bradford, Philadelphia. The Zippo Windproof Lighter sign originally painted on the multi-paned window of the shop has become a symbol of Zippo's early days.
During World War II Blaisdell, a very smart promoter, shipped hundreds of Zippos to generals and war correspondents. Word of the lighter's durability and dependability spread, and the U.S. government ordered every lighter the Zippo Manufacturing Company could produce between 1943 and 1945.
When Blaisdell died in 1978 Zippo went to his two daughters, Harriett Wick and Sarah Dorn. They knew the business quite well having grown up stuffing cotton wicks into Zippos. Today their children work for the company too.
Save a few minor changes in the flint wheel and case finishes, the Zippo remains nearly exactly as George Blaisdell created it over 70 years ago. Today, the Zippo brand makes tape measures, knives, money clips, writing instruments and key holders, all engravable and personalizable to the owner. The American-made quality and Lifetime Guarantee makes the Zippo lighter a valuable collector's item around the world, with collectors' clubs in England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan, and of course, the United States.

Hi Paul and Sara, The hazel stick arrived last Friday by post. I decided to give it to my father for his birthday, as I thought it might afford him a better grip due to the larger knob handle. On Sunday, I presented him with the stick and he was absolutely delighted with it rustic look and strength. Thank you both for your assistance with my inquiries and orders. Cheers!

Thanks very much for the case wheels (and sent so quickly). The axles are a bit long, but I've managed to squeeze them in. You've saved me the cost of a new case, which is great! Best wishes.

Dear Sara and Paul, I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing customers service. Not many companies bother to keep their customers up to date and proactively contacting them.
My husband loves his new gloves. I'm sure I'll be ordering more in the future.
Happy New Year!
