Zippo Lighter Flints
Product Code: Z2429Handy little pack of 6 replacement flints for your Zippo lighter. Why not buy two packs whilst you're at it?
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 SayDear Sara & Paul, I have just received the Barbour Leather Tarras Bag. It is excellent. I have been looking for a bag for some considerable time and have finally got the ideal product. Not too big, not too small, comfortable and looks very classy. The perfect combination of form and function. The service and the price were great. I thoroughly recommend the product and the Company. Yours sincerely,
Alan W., Cambridgeshire
Thanks a lot. I'm really impressed. I was shopping christmas presents the other day and ordered both from Danish web shops and your shop in UK. I was surprised that I received the package from you earlier than the Danish shops. And the boots for my daughter are just perfect. Thanks again :) Regards Anette

Many thanks for despatching my order so promptly. It was received 1st Class post today.
Jim Q., Glenrothes
I want to thank for your attention and let you know that I received the locks yesterday in time for another trip. It was indeed fantastic to find your site selling those locks. I bought that Delsey suitcase in a trip to London in June 1984!! The sales agent jumped on the bag to demonstrate how strong it was (at the time thos suitcases were still produced in France), I never forget that and indeed, it is strong - 27 years old and still in good shape, but the locks could not resist airport security in Houston. The new locks are now in place and tomorrow will fly again in another direction.

I just wished to send a short note this morning, to thank you, and MOST
sincerely, for the lovely gent's umbrella cane! My son is absolutely
delighted with it, and from what he has told me...it is the same one,
(from Classic Canes), that he had unfortunately lost recently.
My son is a fellow who sincerely enjoys his classic dress attire...and
frequently orders much of his clothing and many accessories from
various places in the U.K. Simply much finer quality, all around, than
what we find here in the States! He had grown quite attached to his
former umbrella. He works in New York City...and had left it behind him
after a visit to the Opera one evening, and it couldn't be recovered. I
am so very glad that I have found your site...and that I was able to
locate another one as a gift for him!
Your service has been truly wonderful...and so GREATLY appreciated! We
look forward to doing business with you again in the near future!!
Best Wishes and God Bless!
