OT - Any Zippo users/collectors out there?

Postby sam the man.. » Thu Feb 27, 2003 1:00 am

Howdy Spyderfolks...



Any Zippo users or collectors out there? This nippy 'lil lighter had saved my butt many times in the wilderness.. Well, I think it'll be cool to have a polished brass-Zippo with a '<img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>' logo laser blasted on it.. What do you think? Will it look 'good'??

I'm working on my 2nd zippo, still haven't found the 1st.

I'm going to get the bug engraved on this one as soon as I buy another. It'll take him a few days to do it.

Samo, I have two. One regular chrome on brass and one matte steel (?) on brass with a deer motif. On the opposite side, there is my name and internet alias.

Beside those two, there is also a Brunton Helios. However, I like the Zippos more <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

I have a pretty extensive Zippo and old Ronson collection. My favorite Zippo though has to be my first, an old flat brass. I love the ring it puts off everytime I open it.

First time everytime!!!!

Samo, a Google search for "titanium zippo" turns up several hits. Solid Ti but it has a black aluminum oxide finish. Little bit pricy though.
