Flame On!

Zippo

F/5.6, 1/20, ISO 1600.

Day 228 / 365

It’s really difficult to find what you want on eBay. I was searching for cigarette Lighters and found over 15,000 matches.

Interesting Fact: George G. Blaisdell founded Zippo Manufacturing Company in 1932, and produced the first Zippo lighter in early 1933, being inspired by an Austrian cigarette lighter of similar design made by IMCO.[2] It got its name because Blaisdell liked the sound of the word “zipper” and “zippo” sounded more modern.[citation needed] On March 3, 1936, a patent was granted for the Zippo lighter.
