Eighty-five years ago at the Bradford Country Club in Pennsylvania, George Blaisdell developed what would soon become the very first Zippo design. Now, almost a century and 550+ million lighters later, Zippo continues to serve as the industry standard in both design and dependability.
It’s because of this brand milestone that Zippo has released their collector’s edition 85th Anniversary Windproof Lighter – constructed out of high polished Armor that works to showcase the Zippo logo and commemorates their lengthy and successful tenure as an iconic American brand. Each handsome USA-made lighter features a high polish chrome finish, multi-cut Lustre imprints, and is consecutively numbered and authenticated with their exclusive Zippo 85th Anniversary stamp on the bottom of each piece. And because it’s windproof and guaranteed for life, it’ll work virtually anywhere or anytime. They’re also offering up a $30 version of the commemorative lighter as well that will fit in with any daily EDC arsenal.
