Lovely design, very well made, and a wonderful Zippo overall
on 12 August 2015
It's the same great quality that you'd expect from any Zippo lighter. The chrome is wonderfully polished, and the Ace design is truly beautiful - it's an intricate and very pleasing design. The lighter has a great weight to it and, as with all Zippos, has the iconic 'click' sound when you flick open the lid. I've had many compliments on it! It's filled in the usual way, by sliding it out of the frame, lifting the bottom cover and lint, and squirting some lighter fluid in. It's really easy to fill and maintain. My last Zippo lasted for many years, and this one will likely last as long. I'd recommend using the proper Zippo lighter fluid - using cheap stuff from the market is what damaged my last lighter. The replacement fluid is fairly inexpensive, as are the Zippo replacement flints. I use my Zippos in all weather, while camping and hiking, and it never fails. It's windproof which, unlike many other supposed 'windproof' lighters', actually works. I managed to light a stove on top of windy Snowdon using a Zippo! If you're thinking about getting a Zippo, I'd go for it, you won't regret it!
