Jim Beam Brushed Chrome Ziippo Lighter.



data-pin-do="buttonPin" data-pin-config="none">Jim Beam Brushed Chrome Ziippo Lighter

Product Code: 20635

This 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 womans 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.

Hi Paul,

I received the Foldaway Supaseat today and although I have not had the opportunity to test it thoroughly, I think it will serve the purpose for which it was envisaged perfectly: I am an amateur (very) birdwatcher and can only walk very short distances with a stick. The Supaseat can double for me as stick and seat while trying to get the best out of nature!

As an aside, I've noted that Saddler.co.uk also purvey some quite attractive walking sticks, so I could well be coming back to you in the not too distant future. Until then, my thanks

Best Regards

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. Ive done several over the last couple years, a few more to go!

Just wanted to let you know that the martingale arrived safely and is just beautiful! It looks
really great with the horse brasses strapped to it and hung on the wall. Thanks so much.
I will register later. Carol

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!

Seasons greetings.

best, Jackie
