Zippo Black Leather Belt Pouch with Clip
Product Code: ZLPCBKWhat better way to show off your Zippo lighter than a purpose made Zippo belt pouch. This one is made from black leather and has a clip for easy attachment to your belt.
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.

Received today, thank you very much.
Mandie F., Halesworth
Good morning, Sara and Paul. Just to say we collected our order this morning from the Post Office and wanted to let you know how delighted I am with the product. It is very smart with an attractive lining and very good value for the price! A great present for my friend's son's 18th birthday. My 19-year-old son said he'd be
delighted to receive such a present. I think it's a combination of the soft leather, versatility of 'slots', beautiful lining (matching the packet as well) and reasonable price which made it such a satisfying purchase.
With best wishes.
Rachel M., Edinburgh
