4.0 out of 5 stars Depends on whether you get a good one, 3 Aug 2014

This review is from: Zippo Benzinfeuerzeug 1935.25 Replica (Sports)
I had one of these for a few years and loved the boxy design and external hinge. It worked perfectly. Sadly I lost it during a move- fell out my top pocket. It was worn and tarnished and looked as it should. I ordered a replacement. Amazon send out Zippo's by courier for a next day delivery- even if you pick the free delivery option (due to RM restrictions I gather); this is worth noting. The replacement had a lid which did not shut flush. I did everything I could but this particular one beat me and I ended snapping off the little part inside the lid- I'd fiddled too much, not so much since my teenage years in fact. I ordered another, same case- free delivery- arrived next day. Amazon sent the wrong one; it had a picture of the Zippo girl on it. I noticed this also had a lid which didn't sit flush. I spoke to Amazon, whom I must commend for their excellent customer service and a replacement was to be sent out and the wrong one picked up by courier the next day. I asked Amazon if they could be sure to pick a 1935 with a lid which sits flush, and they most certainly did. A rare treat of outstanding CS in this world of incompetence.

So the message hidden within my rambling is that if you get a lighter with a flush lid, you will have lasting and healthy product worthy of 5 stars. But these appear to be hit and miss as my ratio is 50% lucky out of 4.

(The new one is still shiny and perfect looking which I can only take as a sign that I have clearly not smoked enough, and must improve on my feeble efforts.)
