Zippo Ladies Slim Matt Black Cigarette Lighter
Product Code: 1618This slim Zippo lighter is for ladies. It has a matt black finish. A real classic.
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.

Customers SayI have just arrived at my office desk and there waiting for me was the parcel from you containing items I only ordered mid way through yesterday afternoon. That is an astonishing level of service and, as a business owner myself, I wanted to congratulate you.
Wendy A., Northampton
Just to let you know that the caps were delivered late this morning and are just what I was looking for. Once again, thank you for your help and I would be delighted to shop with you again.
Hugh A., Glasgow
Hello Sara and Happy New Year for you and Paul.
It is Antonios from Stockholm. Today I made an order for a pair of gloves which I really liked. By the way, the Zippo I had ordered is really nice. Thank you for your services.
Antonios G., Sweden
Of course, I have been telling everyone who asks where I got my nice new coat. Thanks again
Jacqueline S., Hertfordshire
Thank you. I will register with you and also recommend you to my friends as you got the best price. Best regards.
Henning P., Oslo
Thank you for your rapid delivery of the above order, you have just vindicated my argument for using smaller family companies over large conglomerates, who any given day can mess up a simple transaction without a care in the world.
Lizzie B., Bedford
Just thought I'd give you some feedback from my previous purchase (as I think it's always nice to be told when you do a good job) , I loved the coat and the delivery was really quick. I also spoke to Chelsea last week prior to ordering and she was very helpful. I'd definately recommend you to my friends and family.
Michelle M., Sittingburne
Hi, Just want to say how impressed I am with the speed and quality of my order.
After making this order Tuesday afternoon I was able to pick up the package from the Royal Mail depot this morning as unfortunately I wasn't in yesterday.
The speed, packaging and price of postage is something I can't fault. The product is exactly as I expected.
I will be recommending you to my friends and will make sure I return to your site should I need any 'countrywear' in the future.
Ali M., Nottingham
I would like to thank you and your staff in trying to help me and the courteous manner in which they made every effort to do so
Sadly I have had to source another company to get the walking stick., at a higher price I hasten to add.
I would most certainly come back to you in the future or recommend your company.
Well Done on Brilliant Customer Service - even though I did not become a customer on this ocassion!
Many thanks Paul, Thank you. You rendered a perfect & customized customer care. It has been a pleasure, so be sure I'll check your site whenever looking for waxed or other English clothing. Best regards,
Pablo B., France
