Jim Beam High Polish Brass Zippo Lighter
Product Code: Z254JB929This Zippo lighter is a must for the serious Zippo collector. Somehow the Zippo and Jim Beam brands just seem to go together. The entire front of this sturdy windproof lighter shows the label detail from bottles of Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon 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.

Thank you very much for your good news.
I have received the lining safely today.
In the past back and forth emails between me and both of you, I have felt that your shop is warm and sincere toward the customers. And I truly appreciate your efforts to meet my request.

Rosanna D., Hamilton, New Zealand
Thank you - great service, goods arrived today.
I would just like to say thank you for my order it is perfect. I have a Radley grap bag in dark brown with shades of pinks which at times I just wished I could put over my shoulder. With your help I am now able. Matching the brown was harder, but a few shades of pink on the bag and the design of the bag I am able to fix your shoulder strap, it is now going to be great. Thank you once again.
