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.

Thanks very much for the fast delivery of my purse. Very pleased with both the purse, and the service - excellent. The purse is exactly what I wanted. You have the best selection of purses/ wallets that I've come across in my pusuit of 'the perfect purse', and I've been looking for ages, I was spoilt for choice in the end! Will definitely be recommending and using you again.

Hello Sara and Paul, I wanted to thank you for the receipt of my order and for your responsiveness. See you soon.
Philippe A., France
Thankyou - finally after months of searching - these jodhpurs actually fit my rather large partner! Have popped through another order, this time for beige ones - many thanks!
Melanie A., London
Hi Paul, and thanks for getting my order shipped so quickly. I look forward to repairing my suitcase!....The replacement wheel units are now fitted - they weren't a perfect match to the Samsonite originals but I got them to fit with a bit of huffing and puffing.
David B., Twickenham
Thanks great service and the kids and I loved the part at the top of the page that said if we order today this is when it will arrive. In fact they spotted it and told me if we order today the boots would arrive Tuesday, it managed their expectations perfectly. That is a function that most websites don't display and it's what you always want to know.
Rowan L., Bromley
