Zippo Black Matte Pipe Lighter
Product Code: Z218PLZippo windproof lighters are just as good at lighting pipes as they are at lighting cigarettes. The pipe lighter range has one large hole in the mesh around the flame so that the flame can come out sideways and the smoker can light his tobacco perfectly without burning his fingers or the bowl of his pipe.
This range of Zippo lighters is aimed specifically at the pipe smoker. This example is in the matt black finish and is adorned with a simple image of a pipe in white in the bottom left hand corner. A really great gift for the pipe smoker in your life.
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.

The Brady Ariel bag arrived safely in Sydney yesterday. I am delighted with the quality of the bag, and once again wish to extend my thanks for your wonderful service in getting it to me so swiftly (all the way to other side of the planet). We have two house-guests staying at the moment, and both were very taken by the Brady workmanship and styling ..... plainly some things will always be successful, even after 80 or 90 years. I suspect there may be more orders coming at some point :-)Best Regards.
Ross M., New South Wales
Thanks very much for the case wheels (and sent so quickly). The axles are a bit long, but I've managed to squeeze them in. You've saved me the cost of a new case, which is great! Best wishes.
