    My trusted Zippo.. got my eye on 3 vintage zippo's on ebay, 1 scrimshaw, & 2 chrome... Good Luck...
    Read a post from Woody on Zippo changing out the insert, sent this one off to Zippo awhile back and they fixed it up with a pipe insert... now, I know how easy it is, my Zippo options are endless...

    Can you take me a picture jeebs? I've been collecting them since I was 14 with over 150 of the buggers upstairs, and I don't know the answer to this straight away so I'm interested to see it. I would expect it to be a replica of a classic or a remake in some way.

    So far this is the only Zippo I have. I still need to send away for the pipe insert from Zippo or, I was thinking the Thunderbird butane insert?

    I probably should, but its hard work taking photos as they are so shiny. Lol.
    Maybe I'll give it ago this week. I'm so in love with them but no one ever gets to see them.

    Best off just using the one pipe insert and moving it to the zippo your using that way the other inserts stay pristine. :)

    I lost the one I bought back in the 90's several years ago and bought this one to replace it around 2007.

    Here are my Zippos. From left to right:
    Zippo Pipe lighter I picked up
    US Army Zippo given to me when I retired
    US Army Zippo given to me when I graduated AIT(I use this every day)
    Sherlock Holmes Zippo came with Peterson System set that my wife bought me when I came back from Afghanistan.
    White House Zippo that my Grandpa got when he worked there. It is one of the few things we recovered from the ashes when his house burned down, and is my most cherished.

    These are the two I can find. I can't seem to find the one I got at Guantanamo Bay back in 95. I hope it's around somewhere still. The silver one has seen lots of use over the past 10 years or so, the green one was gifted to me just last summer and hasn't been used much yet. I am considering sending it in for a pipe insert.

    I only have one Zippo but it sure is cool. It was a gift from my wife on my last birthday.

    Me either and she won't tell me where she got it. She did good though considering I am obsessed with Gretsch guitars.
