Zippo Lighter History

The history of Zippo Manufacturing Company dates back to over 75 years ago, when a talented metal worker watched a friend awkwardly using an Austrian made cigarette lighter. The metal worker was Mr. George G. Blaisdell, and in 1932 in Bradford, Pennsylvania, Mr. Blaisdell made the first Zippo lighter. Since then Zippo has produced over 425 million Zippo lighters.

Mr. Blaisdell, as referred to by Zippo employees, was born on June 5, 1895, in Bradford, PA. He was not a scholarly young man so his father, Philo, put him to work at the family business, the Blaisdell Machinery Company. Mr. Blaisdell learned the craft of metal working, which proved to be a valuable skill when he manufactured the first Zippo lighter later in his life.

During the Great Depression Mr. Blaisdell and his family struggled to find stability. The family business was sold years earlier and the money was put into oil. However, even the oil business was not immune to the effects of the Great Depression. Mr. Blaisdell knew he had to do something, and against the advice of those around him he put the rest of the money he had into forming Zippo Manufacturing Company. Mr. Blaisdell's passion to build the Zippo brand despite the risks and challenges is the foundation for what the Zippo lighter has become.

The first Zippo lighter sold for $1.95, and from the start Mr. Blaisdell offered an unconditional lifetime guarantee - "it works or we fix it free". The application for the original Zippo lighter was filed on May 17, 1934, and was granted on March 3, 1936, patent number 2032695. Although there are many different colors and styles, the basic design of the Zippo lighter remains the same to this day, with only minor improvements.

During World War II Zippo suspended production on its lighters and dedicated to manufacturing for the U.S. military. It was then that Zippo produced the first steel case Zippo lighter with a black crackle finish. Millions of soldiers carried their Zippo lighters into battle, establishing Zippo as an American icon. The continued manufacturing for the military gave Zippo Manufacturing financial stability, so at the end of the war Zippo had the resources to introduce the Zippo lighter to the rest of America.

In the mid 1950's Zippo date codes were introduced for quality control, but the codes proved to be an invaluable tool for collectors. The code is stamped into the bottom of each lighter, along with the word "Zippo". From 1933 until the mid 1950's word Zippo was stamped in block letters. The Zippo script logo was stamped on the bottom of the lighters around 1955. The manufacturing date usually determines how valuable a Zippo is.

On October 3, 1978, Mr. Blaisdell passed away. But, the Zippo Manufacturing Company continues to prosper. Zippo lighters are sold in 120 countries, and Zippo has a brand awareness of 98% - 98 out of 100 people surveyed have knowledge of the Zippo brand. The Zippo lighter has become a part of American and global culture, and it has appeared in the scenes of over 1,200 major motion pictures and television shows.
