    When you are shopping for these it is important to find sources where you can invest in fluid for less. Budget-minded cigar smokers purchase their lighter fluid in bulk on the Internet.

    The Zippo lighter also showcased in movies through the music. The “clicks” from a Zippo were instrumentally included in the song “It’s Probably Me” in the motion picture “Lethal Weapon III”, featuring veteran actor Mel Gibson and Danny Clover.

    Last year in 2007 Zippo again made news by launching the new ‘butane’ cigarette lighter which is also called Zippo BLU. Until these days Zippo Manufacturing Company has produced over 350 million wind proof lighters since 1932. With the exception of a few improvements in the flint wheel and some modifications in case finishes, Zippo’s original design remains virtually unchanged and still looks great and are easy to use.

    The Zippo lighter is a relic worthy of historic mention. I have seen many lighters but nothing comes close.

    This is the time when people thought smoking was cool. The lighter made you look cooler.

    I’m from Europe and you don’t really find zippo lighters here. But I do own one exactly like the first lighter from the second bunch, that shiny colorful one.
    I’m a weekend smokers (mostly cigars) so I do use it from time to time.

      Interesting, Christian. Surprised that Zippos aren’t all over the place in Europe. They’re pretty old school, even in the U.S.

    Zippo’s have a style. I don’t even smoke, but I used to carry one around just so I could pull it out when someone needed a light

    Are the nose art Zippo lighters still available or only from WW2? I’m asking because the pictures you have look like they’re of new models.

      They are inspired by WWII nose art but are brand spanking new.

    Hey Cristian Stan, the nose art pin-up Zippos inspired the article! The classic brass and steel Zippos appeal to me. Like a chunk of working history.

    Nice write up and great pics on the zippo. I remember in highschool some people at zippos and they were very cool.

    If I were a smoker, I suppose a zippo would be a very important element to my backpack gear.

    The fact that they can light in the wind is fantastic. I have seen plenty of people spend more than a minute or two trying to light a cigarette. If they had a zippo, it would have been much easier.

    Bottom line: All smokers should strive to own a Zippo. If they really cannot or will not quit. 🙂

      Thanks, Dave! I carry a lighter even though I don’t smoke. It’s a miniature BIC disposable!

    Honestly, I have never touched this type of lighter in my entire life.
    My grandpa even owns this before but he never let me hold it (I was still 2 years old that time).
