Zippo Ladies Slim Matt Black Cigarette Lighter with border
Product Code: Z1618ZBThis slim Zippo lighter is for ladies. It has a matt black finish, red border and Zippo logo. 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 womanís 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! I received the hat today and am very pleased!All the best,
Charles C., Kentucky
Many thanks for a great service, you may wonder what I am using the pins for, I make walking sticks and set the pewter figure in to the horn antler it give a great effect so if the client has gun dogs I use a lab or some thing similar.
The one I am on with now is for a 30th birthday gift and the young man shoots so he is going to get the woodcock inlaid.
You will get my custom from now on.

Thank you for the quick delivery of the folding walking stick. The stick is light and easy to fold, which will be of great benefit to my 93 year old Aunt. Thank you once more for your excellent service.

Kate L., Guildford
Just a note to say thank you for your excellent service with my husband's Christmas present. I would have preferred the brown wallet but your letter came quickly to ask if I minded the substitute - I didnít and to add to my satisfaction my husband was very pleased with my present. Thank you and wishing you a prosperous 2015!
