Zippo Tan Leather Belt Pouch with Loop
Product Code: ZLPLBWhat better way to show off your Zippo lighter than a purpose made Zippo belt pouch. This one is made from tan leather and has a loop 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 womanís 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 for selling such a quality product. I looked high and low for this kind of leather wallet with an elastic strap to keep it closed, but it seems might be the only company to manufacture such a product. My father has a wallet just like it, but his is old and nearly destroyed, so I'm happy to be able to replace it for him.Best wishes.|

Thank you for the purses which have just arrived. The colours are as advertised and I am very pleased with them and the service. I especially liked the Ember purse. Kind regards.

Paul, Thanks for the excellent service. We needed the stick for a friend's birthday on Saturday so was looking for a local supplier where I could pick it up from. The personal delivery provided by Abbie was beyond expectation. Will be able to deliver it personally to our friend now! Please make sure the postal charge goes to Abbie for coming out of her way this evening. I'll try to pop in & say hello next time I'm in Chesham. Thanks once again, Adrian.

Thank you for sending the order so promptly. It arrived Wednesday, the day after I ordered it! My daughter is delighted with the jacket.
Elizabeth B., Reading
Thank you for my order, I have put on the replacement wheel on my suitcase and it is a good as new, cheaper than a new suitcase.
Patricia R., Leeds

Dear Sara and Paul
Many thanks for the prompt shipment of the wheels I ordered.
They fit almost perfectly. My cabin bag is an Antler about 15 years old.
Iíve had to drill holes 5mm further up than the old ones, the 2 vertical lugs are higher than the old ones.
A minor fix which I have successfully done.
It is my wifeís favourite bag so hopefully get another 15 years wear.

Dear Paul, We received our straps and we are very pleased with the quality and look. Thank you for your personal attention to our order.
