Lighters: Zippo Cornell & Diehl Pipe Lighter 2022
Product Number: 001-068-0482
Though originally inspired by an early 19th-century Austrian lighter that used brass shell-casings for the main body, with an external flint and striker, the simpler and more self-contained Zippo design has become an American icon known throughout the world (along with its distinctive, opening "clink!" and smart, closing "clunk!"), and especially so by outdoorsmen and military personnel. Even with the rise in popularity of wind-proof butane torch lighters, the simple, trusty Zippo remains a favorite for those who venture into the highest altitudes and coldest climates, where the Zippo design still proves itself to be the most reliable source for life-sustaining fire.
This special-limited edition Zippo lighter was fashioned in collaboration with Cornell & Diehl, celebrating the American blending house's 30th anniversary of quality pipe tobacco production. It bears the C&D tobacco plant logo etched on the side and is fitted with an insert to assist in angled pipe lighting, specifically designed to meet the unique needs of pipe smokers.
