Checkout the auction site
for photos of the actual lighters. Neat stuff. Sort of reminiscent of whalers of the 19th century carving scrimshaw... with perhaps a bit more colorful language.

One of Charlies favorite tricks was’ clicking’ a Zippo at forward sentries to make them think it was a GI coming at your front. Hell, everybody had one.

"Its the stainless steel case that users like to modify and personalize"
So many people write about so much stuff they know so little about. I thought Zippos had a chrome plated brass case.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
During my college days we practiced opening a Zippo by squeezing the top and bottom with the right hand and lighting it by snapping our left hand fingers at the edge of the wheel. Took practice, but was more fun than studying.
I also had a Zippo in RVN, but it’s long gone.

I remember seeing lighters for sale on Okiniawa that would be noted as “not be safe for work” due to the engraving and pictures on them.
