The Zippo lighter was first produced in America in 1933 by the Zippo Manufacturing Company founded by George G. Blaisdell. Blaisdell got his idea from an Australian type of lighter. An official patent was granted for Zippo lighters on March 3rd 1936.
During the early years of Zippo lighter production the lighter case was made of brass but was changed to being made of steel during WWII. They became so popular during the war that soldiers demanded that military supply stores carried the zippo. Since then they have made many lighters to commemorate the Wars and the military. Their military lighters have become highly collectible amongst Zippo lighter groups.
Many Companies have used these lighters as advertising merchandise and as gifts to employees or to celebrate certain company events. Many of the early Zippos had painted designs but as the times have changed so has the Zippo design but yet keeping the same basic design.
