Zippo Matt Black Cigarette Lighter with logo
Product Code: Z218ZLThis Zippo lighter actually carries the Zippo logo. It has a matt black finish. 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.

Customers SayThank you Sara and Paul, wheel arrived next day and because of your excellent description of your wheels on your website I managed to find the exact one that the airline destroyed on my much loved Antler suitcase. I am so pleased that I managed to find out that the wheels can be replaced, I have saved myself at least £100 and can carry on using an otherwise perfect case. Thank you from a very satisfied customer.
Dear Sara and Paul, I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing customers service. Not many companies bother to keep their customers up to date and proactively contacting them.
My husband loves his new gloves. I'm sure I'll be ordering more in the future.
Happy New Year!
