The Zippo story is almost too storied to recount. Founded in the 1930's by George G. Blaisdell after noticing how an Austrian lighter performed well in the wind but was awkward to operate, Blaisdell redesigned the strengths of the Austrian design into a rectangular case and the Zippo was born. Throughout the years, Zippos lighters were famously featured as cultural icons by various celebrities, wartime heroes, and prominent companies further solidifying their reputation as the go-to lighter of every American. Remarkably not much has changed from the original Zippo lighter design of 1932 aside from some minor improvements. In addition, Blaisdell's guarantee: "It works or we fix it for free", is still honored today.
