Zippo lighters, in my opinion are indeed true works of art. I absolutely adore them. They were first produced by Gorge Blaisdell in the early 1930’s . Their just so darn handy !
“You can use them to warm your hands in the cold , during a black out, as a torch , or as devices to tell you the direction of the wind and even as an emergency beacon and last but definitely not the least, light things on fire “. Those were the exact same words I told my friend when he asked me why I liked those little tin cans so much . He replied by saying ” Can’t you do all of those things with a matchstick?” . He clearly had a strong point . But I pointed out to him that a Zippo lighter’s advantage over a matchstick was that it had a flame that would never die out . Even with strong winds or any kind of severe weather for that matter ; it would keep burning ,so long as it didn’t run out of gas .
What I love the most about these lighters is that , there’s always a lighter for each and every person on this planet ; a lighter with a completely unique design that can be matched with every kind of personality imaginable . My personal favorite is the one with the anarchy graffiti symbol .
