Zippo Matt Navy Blue Cigarette Lighter with Logo
Product Code: Z239ZLThis Zippo lighter has a matt navy blue finish and carries the Zippo logo. A real classic.
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.

Hi, I ordered a Barbour jacket from you on Tuesday and it arrived yesterday - such good service!
Thanks so much for getting it dispatched so quickly, so much more efficient than many of the huge online retailers!
Again, many thanks!
Victoria L., London
Thank you, my clasp has arrived today, excellent service. I only needed the back plate with the twist lock and although the plate is wider than the Mulberry one on my old Annie bag the twist lock is the correct size for the slot so I should be able to effect the repair, don't want to remove the front plate as it has the Mulberry logo.
My thanks again.

Thanks for your prompt response to my order. I've purchased these products because I couldn't find them anywhere else in the UK and your range, product description and associated accessories offer excellent choice. I'm conscious this isn't a particularly valuable order, however it is for my favourite and extremely well travelled Tripp compact roll bag which picked up a stone during a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur which basically broke one of the wheels completely. Thanks again for your prompt service and I'll definitely keep your business in mind.
