Jim Beam Brushed Chrome Ziippo Lighter
Product Code: 20635This Zippo lighter is a must for the serious Zippo collector. Somehow the Zippo and Jim Beam brands just seem to go together. The front of this sturdy brushed chrome windproof lighter shows the Jim Beam logo and the legend 'Real Bourbon since 1795'. 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.

Customers SayI just wanted to write that the package arrived today. Thank you so much for all your help. The jacket is perfect - and a truly great value. I was astounded that the package arrived in under a week, even though it was shipped half way around the world, it arrived faster than some packages I've ordered from California. I'll certainly order from you again when I need another jacket.
Got them today. Fantastic service!

I am glad my business is going to a small company, I have bought from you before & always had excellent service & received perfect products. Pass my thanks to Alice. She was brilliant, contacted me immediately re. an item not in stock & offered an alternative. Though it was past the deadline for orders, she was helpful still sending out the parcel the same day. Outstanding customer service, efficient and polite. It has been a long time since I have received such service. Thank you & Alice for your help.
Pauline K., Cheshire
I just wanted to send a big thank you for my order, I had been looking everywhere in the UK for some handle loops to repair a poker case I acquired.
The delivery was a 10/10, receiving my order the very next day. The parts are wonderfully polished and all though were 1mm to long (I thought they might be) but I managed to make them fit, and fit wonderfully.
I will definitely be bringing my business back to your company.
Thank you again and kindest regards
J. Elam, U.K.
