Jack Daniels Brass Zippo Lighter
Product Code: 254BJD428This Zippo lighter is a must for the serious Zippo collector. Somehow the Zippo and Jack Daniels brands just seem to go together. The entire front of this sturdy high polished brass, windproof lighter is covered with a plaque, showing label detail from bottles of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey. A really great gift.
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.

I wanted to send an email to say thank you for the delivery of my two Leather Driving Licence Holders. I was hoping to send you an email sooner but had missed the postman for the delivery and had to pick them up from the sorting office on the weekend.
They were just what I was looking for and I was so impressed at how quickly they had been dispatched and with receiving your email of confirmation too, which also had a lovely personal touch to it.
Thank you again.
