About Zippo Lighters

The story of the Zippo lighter begins in the early 1930s when its founder, George G. Blaisdell, redesigned an Australian-made lighter. The Australian lighter required two hands to operate, was unattractive (at least in Mr. Blaisdell's opinion), and easily dented. It did, however, work well, even in windy conditions.

Mr. Blaisdell's redesign of the Australian lighter produced the first Zippos, lighters that quickly became known as needing only one hand to operate, easy to light and stay lit, durably made, and attractive to look at. Along with the first Zippo lighters came Mr. Blaisdell's now-famous guarantee: "It works or we fix it free."

Shortly after America joined World War II in 1941 the Zippo Manufacturing Company dedicated all of its production to the USA military, halting production for civilian markets until the end of the war in 1945. American military personnel carried the Zippo into the war and around the world, and an association with the Zippo and America was so strongly formed that the durable Zippo lighter became symbolic of the USA itself.

Early in its history the Zippo Manufacturing Company began producing lighters with unique and different designs and artwork, often at the request of companies looking for a way to advertise on the lighters. The artwork has become as famous as the durable, dependable lighters themselves, and highly loved by millions of Zippo owners in American and worldwide.
