Zippo

The King of the Lighters

A man named George Blaisdell founded the brand in 1932. Blaisdell got his inspiration for the brand from an Austrian cigarette lighter. The brand is named Zippo because Blaisdell liked the sound of the word zipper, but zippo sounded more modern to him. The zippo lighters gained popularity in World War II, especially among the U.S military members. Many soldiers during the Vietnam war got their mottos engraved on their own Zippos. Today, Zippos are a collector’s item, and the company still produces incredible designs and different kinds of Zippo styles. Copa Habana has a wide range of Zippo lighters that are going to spark an obsession in you.
