At the heart of American storytelling, there is the Zippo lighter. Originally made in 1933, Zippo served as an essential accessory to American soldiers fighting in the War. A sound so sweet it should be trademarked, the Zippo lighter is known for it's dependability and grit, igniting in almost every condition man will face. We created our Zippo following the blueprints of the classic 1935 design and added a patriotic finish on one side, giving the other to you so you can make your mark. So share a smoke, start a fire and beat this thing up. It'll only be greater because of it.
