Jim Beam High Polish Brass Zippo Lighter
Product Code: Z254JB929This Zippo lighter is a must for the serious Zippo collector. Somehow the Zippo and Jim Beam brands just seem to go together. The entire front of this sturdy windproof lighter shows the label detail from bottles of Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. 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 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.

Thank you for your message. The boots were delivered yesterday and we are very pleased with the promptness of your meeting our order. They are a birthday present for 22nd December and so often we have had to wait until the last moment to get something we have ordered many weeks before.

Dear Sara and Paul, The part arrived safely last week - thank you for this and for your email. I am so pleased to have found this part, and will look at registering on your site. It is good not only to get the right part to mend an expensive handbag (£1,200 quote from the makers!) but also to find a good business that is family run. I have liked you on Facebook and if I am ever in the area, will come in.
I have already told a friend about you, she was very interested.
