5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent lighter, even better price! =], 12 Jan. 2011
A decent little lighter, I lost my old zippo and the 2 days I was without it were pure hell.

I've checked for any signs that it's a forgery, just in case, and I can confirm that I'm pretty sure it's a GENUINE zippo lighter. Just in case you were wondering how to check for a forged Zippo I'll post a few simple points:

1. Dull flat click. When you open and shut your Zippo it should have a nice echoey ping.
2. Brass pins. A genuine Zippo will not have brass pins through the thumbwheel and the lock connecting the insert to the case.
3. Obviously the price, this is pretty much the RRP for a cheap Zippo. Fakes will be cheaper.

You can also check when your Zippo was made by looking on the bottom of the case. The letter on the left will indicate the month (A is Jan, B is Feb etc.) And then the year is on the right. Mine is Jan 2010.
The month and date will also be on the insert (don't worry if the date on the insert doesn't match the date on the bottom, they are often made at different times).

Would Definitely recommend! 10/10 =]
