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.

|Dear Sara & Paul, |
Just wanted to say that the scarf arrived this morning, just hours after ordering and I am so delighted. I am absolutely amazed by the service I have received. Personal and prompt. Having lost my previous scarf it seemed an impossible task to find it again. Describing the scarves you have over the phone has actually located the one I wanted and I now have my 'old scarf' back (in newer condition). Can't tell you how impressed I am and I look forward to receiving your newsletter in the future. Have no doubt I shall be ordering again and thank you SO much!
All the very best,
Thanks for you excellent service, the replacement leather seat arrived today, and I had it fitted within minutes perfectly.
Thank you again so much, it is nice to know that there are companies out there in the UK that still care about service.
I am off to France next week for the first shoot of the season, an need my shooting stick, as I am just 80.

Hi, I got my hat today, I am utterly delighted with it, we have his 'n' hers matching hats now, which is unfortunate but such a great hat and as before, terrific customer service and communication and it was dispatched so fast.
I love my hat and it arrived really fast! And your customer service is fantastic. Many thanks,
Hi Paul, The order arrived today, many thanks. Great service! The leathers look great too. I’m sure my sister will be thrilled with them - they are part of her Christmas present. Kind regards

Hi Paul & Sara,
Just a quick note to say thanks very much for your help with my order and also for the prompt delivery. Everything is suitable and I look forward to ordering again sometime in the near future.

Today I received the martingale for horse brasses I ordered recently. It arrived promptly - thank you. My late wife was very British, we met when I was serving in the US Air Force. We married and returned home here to the US. She brought with her several horse brasses as a bit of ol’ England. Many of these brasses were mounted on cheap martingales made of a paper material. I am going thru them and re-hanging the brasses on your fine leather martingales. I’ve done several over the last couple years, a few more to go!

Dear Paul & Sara, Just to let you know that the liner I ordered arrived today - we're currently based in Oslo. Very many thanks for such a speedy service.
The liner is super snuggly but, even so, I think the temperatures here, heavy snow and minus 19 forecast for the weekend, have finally outmatched my trusty Barbour and I'll now have to embrace the michelin-man padded down look, at least until the Spring!
