This Zippo lighter is a real classic. Zippo lighters have been produced ever since 1932. The American company has almost become a synonym for this type of lighter. Everyone has seen them! The function of the wick that hangs in a fuel tank is characteristic for this lighter. By rotating the wheel alongside a flint the sparks will hit the wick. As such it will light up. A wind catcher is fitted around the wick. As such the Zippo has been quite wind-resistant for dozens of years, even before storm lighters emerged.
Zippo's have always been a part of life. Amongst (survival) enthusiasts and collectors. The simple technique of a Zippo is namely a lot easier to 'troubleshoot' in the field than the modern lighter.
Using your Zippo for the first time
A zippo lighter is empty upon delivery. As such you need to fill it before use. The best thing you can do is use the original Zippo lighter fluid, but benzene is also possible. We are, unfortunately, not able to ship lighter fluid because of safety reasons.
