Lighters like Zippo
Below, I'll show some of these lighters that are not fakes Zippo, but only repeated its construction.
Very common lighters Chinese company STAR. There are two types of STAR - cheap and luxury :) cheap in quality and feel very different from Zippo, they are light, made of an alloy similar to aluminum. More expensive models have a higher quality.
On the insert is lighter STAR logo and website address www.star1988.com:
I have in my collection is a lighter-known Korean brand Barlow. Externally, it is very similar to Zippo, but upon closer inspection one can see the difference in quality of the performance of small parts, the wheel, the stamp:
At the auctions can be found dozens of other lighters, somehow similar to the Zippo outwardly, but their stamp can present a variety of surprises - all of them are Zippo, lighters and other brands. The most common Japanese and American models of lighters Park, Penguin, there are many others. Some look like Zippo everything except the actual stamp is different from other cover mounting, the design of the windshield, etc. - But the principle of the design is still the same.
But the Japanese manufacturer Idealine went the other way. This lighter can be accurately distinguished from Zippo - for much smaller size. Children Zippo - the right of this :)
