This beautiful lighter from Zippo’s Japanese product line features a deeply-embossed titanium coating that looks like rippling waves. It comes in a black or blue finish with Zippo’s famously reliable lighter mechanism inside. They also make versions with swirl and abstract geometric patterns.
Over the past five decades, Zippo has produced a handful of special lighters made from copper. This classic design is now back for a limited time as a pre-production model with a hand-finished, solid copper case. Its insert is made from a unique black-coated steel, and it’s covered by Zippo’s lifetime repair guarantee.
Zippo’s specialized multitool is designed to help reliably start a fire. It’s got a wheel and flint to get sparks going, a wood grater to help make tinder, and comes with a length of fire paracord to get things started. It’s also got a knife, a saw, a bottle opener, and a flathead screwdriver.
BRANDMADE.TV takes us inside the Zippo lighter factory for a look at how they create their iconic windproof lighters. The process starts out with rolls of brass which are shaped to form each lighter’s case before it’s chromed. The interior is formed from steel, then brass, flint, a wick, and cotton are added to complete the assembly.
