This classic Zippo replica has a brushed brass armor finish and sturdy construction. The armor casing is 1.5 times thicker than the traditional Zippo lighters. This allows for more intricate and deep etching designs, and also protection against heavy scratches.
Introduced in 1933, Zippos are known for their wind-proof design and sturdy exterior. They are made in the USA and have hundreds of designs to choose from. Each lighter has a distinctive pattern, bottom stamp signifying the year it was made, and they are all backed by Zippo's famous lifetime guarantee. All lighters are refillable and come packaged in a gift box. Zippo gained popularity during WWII, where the company manufactured its virtually indestructible lighters for the US military. After this period, they were known as an icon to the American people and a lighter you could trust regardless of what life throws at you.
