A metal casing about 1.5 times thicker than the casing of a regular Zippo lighter makes this a Zippo Armor lighter. It can be identified as such with the unique stamp on its bottom. A lovely high polish finish adorns this lighter. It will look amazing with an engraving so feel free to personalize your lighter. Made in the USA, this lighter has a windproof flame and is backed by a lifetime warranty. The flame is fuel by lighter fluid and ignited with a flint wheel.
