You don't get much more American than a Zippo lighter. It's a lighter that's weathered wars, windy days and fashion to rise above it all as a made in the USA, authentic American Icon.
Using a a brushed, brass Zippo as the base, a cut-out nickel is soldered to the lighter. The lighter's then oxidized and each one looks a bit different than the last with various discolorations from the soldering process. Just add some Zippo fluid and use it to your heart's content.
Choose either the Indian or the buffalo side of the nickel.
