Zippo are the ultimate lighter producers and have been making these iconic little wonders for years.
The design is really clever, but rather simple, that's not a bad thing though. Sometime simple is the best!
Basically, the lighter contains a resevoir where you place fuel, that is soaked up by cotton wool and a wick, which carries it to the top/lid part. This can then be ignited with the little flint that sits right next to the fuel soaked wick.
The lid is the part that extinguishes the flame when needed, just by suffocating it.
The build quality of these lighters is exceptional. The lighters are rather heavy for what they are and are usualy made out of brass. They have 2 parts. The case with the lid and the insert. This is where all the workings are.
The insert, litteraly just inserts into the lighter case itself and there you go.
The other great thing about Zippo lighters is the fact that they all come with a lifetime garuntee. If the lighter is faulty at any point and it isn't your fault, you just send the lighter back to Zippo and they will fix/replace it and ship it back to you.
You are responsible for paying for the lighter to get to Zippo itself, but they will pay the return shipping.
These are a fantastic alternative to the chaep plastic lighters and I use mine all the time to light the rayburn/light my handwarmer.
They are brilliant and they look cool too!
Summary: Absolutely beutiful design. One of those classic items.
