Zippo Brushed Chrome Pipe Lighter
Product Code: Z200PLZippo 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 the pipe.
The insert of a Zippo pipe lighter is exactly the same size as the standard Zippo pocket lighter insert, allowing pipe smokers who have a treasured Zippo lighter, the option of replacing the insert and continuing to carry the favourite case.
This range of Zippo lighters is aimed specifically at the pipe smoker. This example is in the brushed chrome finish and is adorned with a simple image of a pipe in black 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.

Hello Paul & Sara,
I just wanted to thank you so much for the excellent service and delivery. I ordered two walking sticks as a birthday present and really didn't expect the items to arrive so quickly. They arrived the next day after ordering and I know that my mother in law is going to love them. Great products, excellent service, I will definitely shop with you again.
Thanks so much
Catherine M., Rugby

Hi Sara and Paul,
Many thanks. They have just been delivered.
Just for your interest, the story behind the order: My mother has not been well recently and is just getting back on her feet after a long stay in hospital. She has just started to do things round the house again and insisted on taking out a small pile of crockery, but being a bit shaky, dropped a mug which shattered. She was very upset. The mug was the Barn Owl mug and was a favourite of my father's who passed away 2 years ago. It took a couple of hours of internet searching and a few surreptitious trips to the bin to look at the pieces of the broken mug until I found that you were selling an exact match.
The otter mug was to keep the barn owl company on the journey! :-)
I am expecting a few tears from Mum later when I take the mugs round to her, but this time they will be tears of joy!
Many thanks for your fast service.
David W., Essex

Amanda C., Liverpool
Thank you, the fasteners arrived very promptly and I have fitted them myself, saving an old, but quality briefcase from having to be thrown out. I'd certainly recommend your company.
Moyna F., Scotland
Hi Paul, Just to say thank you for your prompt and excellent service. My order arrived yesterday by Royal Mail, quite amazing really if you think the order was placed in the afternoon and arrived in Scotland the next day. Most companies south of the border find it difficult to get things delivered to Scotland within a week.
