Zippo was founded in Pennsylvania in 1932 by George G. Blaisdell who wanted to create a great looking lighter that would be easy to use. He obtained the rights for an Austrian windproof lighter with a removable top and re-designed it to his own requirements. Fascinated by another recent invention, the zipper, Blaisdell called his new lighter “Zippo”, and backed it with a Lifetime Guarantee “It works or we fix it free” which still accompanies every Zippo lighter today.
