    Congratulations on the anniversary of the company ZIPPO and sincerely happy that such a great company is that its products do not lose relevance, despite the enormous by the standards of any business terms given that the main products in the form of lighter against Bykov present for 15 rubles sheer looks archaic .

    Joy, and for myself, that I became acquainted with the products of this company and I use it so I do not remember how many years.

    What I like about Zippo:
    sense of this stuff, in this age of ubiquitous ersatz it is one of the few things done on the principle of "to be, rather than to seem".
    Like ritual extraction and use Zippo is also something special.

    Very useful and like that Zippo manipulated with one hand and do not need to hold down the button to fire burned it chastovyruchaet in certain situations where the use of other types of lighters difficult.

    Like the wind resistance of the flame, although gas turbozazhigalki here worthy rivals and more convenient to store the fuel.

    And really like amazing simplicity and associated reliability and remontabelnost lighters, it is also often one of the most important factors for choosing a Zippo.

    Note: very collectible zagalku want in exchange for some money and really want Zippo in titanium with the emblem of the USSR, and the same with the logo of the Border Service.

    What I do not like:
    really do not like the price of gasoline and the Zippo is more is that in St. Petersburg it is not sold at the box office each hypermarket with flints and wicks.

      Andrew, it is best to buy on eBay. There she is from about $ 85 + $ 15-25 shipping to Russia.

      1. 13th (20.10.2012 14:22) ( Reply )

        Shipping from $ 5) but you need to find a seller of the states who will agree to send it to Russia

        1. kypexin (20.10.2012 14:34) ( Reply )

          from $ 5 - is a model of brushed chrome. model armor - it is quite a big box, and something no one especially for 5 bucks in Russia it is not running away to send, simply by weight / volume. I bought both from one seller and he sent one parcel for 20 bucks or something.
