Zippo Black Leather Belt Pouch with Clip
Product Code: ZLPCBKWhat better way to show off your Zippo lighter than a purpose made Zippo belt pouch. This one is made from black leather and has a clip for easy attachment to your belt.
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.

Having spend a great deal of time searching for a reasonably priced Barbour on the internet, I was
very pleased to discover Cox the Saddler's website. As a previous personal customer of their shop in Chesham. I was very pleased to find a range of very competitively priced Barbours advertised. I placed an order Monday 5th January and received my Barbour Tuesday 6th January - what excellent service - nearly as good as going into the shop myself!

You should offer your services to Toye, Kenning and Spencer. They must sell thousands of regalia cases, but they couldn't have cared less when I asked about a replacement hasp. Best wishes
