In 1932, George G. Blaisdell, founder of Zippo, said: 'Build your product with integrity, stand behind it 100% and success will follow.' Since then Zippo has produced over 400 million lighters while becoming an icon of American pop culture. Today, Zippo lighters are one of the fastest growing collectibles in the world. They are bought, sold and traded by thousands of enthusiasts all over the world. Every smoker should own at least 1 Zippo lighter.
