Zippo Lighters

The history of Zippo Manufacturing Company is the story of its people.  From its founder George G. Blaisdell to the many Zippo employees, customers, and collectors, all these people played a vital role in the company’s rich history.  Their loyalty and dedication have made Zippo one of America’s greatest and most recognizable icons. Their fervor and dedication to the brand are unparalleled.

According to their site, Zippo’s history goes as far back as 1932. In late 1932 Mr. Blaisdell decided to reconstruct the Austrian lighter.  First, he noted what obviously did and didn’t work on the lighter. The lighter required the use of two hands to operate and its thin metal surface was easily dented. Then, he fabricated a small rectangular case and attached a lid with a hinge.  He preserved the chimney design which protected the flame.  The result was an attractive lighter that was easily operated with one hand. To this day, the design remains the same and has come to adorn many cosmetic designs. Some lighters have the same full metallic style but may carry some intricate engravings. Others may have a plain coloured coat or a colour coat with a printed design.
