national zippo day july 15

zippo was founded in bradford, pennsylvania in 1932 when george g. blaisdell decided to create a lighter that would look good and be easy in usage…blaisdell obtained the rights for an austrian windproof lighter with a removable top and re-designed it to his own requirements…he made the case rectangular and attached the lid to the bottom with a welded hinge and surrounded the wick with a windhood…fascinated by another recent invention, the zipper, blaisdell called his new lighter ‘zippo’ and backed it with a lifetime guarantee…zippo has produced over 400 million windproof lighters since its founding in 1932 and except for improvements in the flint wheel and modifications in case finishes, blaisdell’s original design remains virtually unchanged…the lifetime guarantee that accompanies every zippo lighter still guarantees that ‘it works or we fix it free’…
