Politically incorrect I know, but who ever knew a politician to be correct
You really wanted to share the Zippo, didn't you? Nice one, btw
Yea well, its been though a lot, my wife gave it to me about 10 years ago (the lighter that is). Your wildlife images are stunning btw
For a ten year old zippo it's in VERY good shape! What are the advantages of a Zippo over a regular lighter?
Oh, thanks for the comments on my gallery Glad you liked it!
zippos are collected by some.
people are also known to do 'tricks' with them. and they have a very very long lifespan.
They also are windproof which used to be a big thing but most better quality lighters have that now
I don't like my zippo. It seems like I have to fill it every time I want to use it. I only really use it every few days to light some incense.
not a zippo...but it's quite good. swiss sport butane lighter with a green flame! not working anymore though...anyone know a guy that can fix it around the northern VA area?
Cool where'd you get it?
u live in gb?
I don't know whether they were designed as such but I believe they were issued (and favoured by) US GIs. You could always get petrol or aviation fuel to fill it with and as already stated it takes a hell of a wind to blow them out. You can also submerse them in water and they will still light aftter a few minutes. I first started using them when Fell (Hill) walking.
I find the brass versions create a better seal. Still they are not so good for occasional use.
it was actually a gift from a friend. so i'm not quite sure where she got it from.
Zippos are great for lighting blunts. (full of tobacco, of course )
Gah! My dad stole mine and lost it.
I have a cool James Bond one, I will get a pic tonight.
I had a brass one for a long time, loved it. But it got lost at a party one night, fell out of my pocket on the couch I think.
Since I quit smoking I have not replaced it. I always heard it was good luck to get a zippo as a present, but bad luck to buy it for yourself.
Not that I am superstitious, just wondered if anyone else hear that?
I have a few, but I lost my two favorites. One was just matte black, and it fell out of my coat and into a sewer grate as I was getting out of my friend's truck. Another was chrome with a jolly roger on it. Never did find out what happened to that one. The two I have left are a Miniature one, probably from the 70s or 80s that I got from my dad. The other has a Megadeth logo, which I got at a concert a couple of years ago. I may post pics later tonight.
Wow you all have some unique zippos. Here's mine.
here's my new one!! just got it yesterday.
So, I dropped some change between the seats in my car the other day. I reached down to retrieve it, and pulled this out:
I lost it four months ago! I thought it was gone forever. Happy day.
Anyway, here are the other two I mentioned in my above post.
I have a lot of Zippos, I collect them,Zippos and Shot Glasses(Is that bad for a teenager?). I don't smoke or drink but I string lacrosse sticks which requires a lot of burning strings. I'll try to get a pic of y collection but they are scttered around, so that may not happen.
the anarchist lighter was taken by my parents...never to be seen again.
second is, if anyone wants to get rid of theirs, i'll be happy to take them. for a price, of course.
