Jim Beam Brushed Chrome Ziippo Lighter.
Product Code: 20635This Zippo lighter is a must for the serious Zippo collector. Somehow the Zippo and Jim Beam brands just seem to go together. The front of this sturdy brushed chrome windproof lighter shows the Jim Beam logo and the legend 'Real Bourbon since 1795'. 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.

|YOUR SHOPPING BAG|
|Hi, Many thanks for your prompt and helpful service.|
The parcel has just arrived and all is as expected.
Mark T., North Yorkshire
Arrived safely, many thanks for fast and efficient service!
Christine F., Kent
Thank you very much indeed for your cracking service. It is probably a crying shame that I've found you close to the end of my shooting career rather than at the beginning. Can hardly now find the trousers anywhere - don't know what Barbour are playing at - I've been wearing them since I had a 32" waist! I have, though, passed your details opn to my step-son.
I don't suppose you have any Lamborne Cavalry Twill on your shelf as well by any chance !? 😉
Kind regards and best wishes,
Phillip F., Devon
Hello the hats have arrived, they are perfect, thank you.
It was good to meet you on Friday.
I am delighted with the new lock you have fitted on my briefcase - glad to see good English craftsmanship is still alive!
I will heartily recommend you and Cox The Saddler to friends and colleagues.
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.
S. Hopkins, Surrey
Hello, Just wanted to say thank you very much for great service. My order was waiting for me when I returned from holiday today and is perfect. All the best, Fred
Frad C., Harrogate
Sara, I received the Brady Lana bag and I am very satisfied, thank you for your good service.
Minda R., Co. Durham
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.
David G., Hampshire
Thank you for your help and for providing such a brilliant service! All the best, Malcolm
