Granted this is not a phrase that would normally come up in daily conversation, but perhaps it should. The Zippo name has been around for 75 years. Born in the 1930's, when the economy was at a very low point, many considered it a foolish endeavor. But, Zippo founder, George Blaisdell, talked about it to anyone that would listen and borrowed money from anyone that would lend it. The rest, as they say, is history.
Zippo has earned a well-deserved reputation as "The Name in Flames" due to their reliability and many looks. Gunther Gifts carries over 650 styles, each one unique in its own right and made more so by custom engraving, should you decide to include this finishing touch.
