    A former colleague owned an immaculate Zippo, in candy red metallic with a prayer etched in gold lettering on the reverse. A most resplendent item. One of the world's most cherished items.

    Zippo's are the best. But Zippo should consider 1. Make in house a quality disposable lighter or license out their name to a quality disposable lighter company and go after that market. 2. Do more marketing to go after the youth market and other markets. Zippo should go after the X games crowd, the ig crowd and Youtube crowd. So many great potential nww and old customers tp go after. 3. License out their name or manufature themselves clothing and other quality U.S. made products with the quality Zippo name. Target outdoors camping types. What products could Zippo make for hikers campers, runners, bikers, fisherman, hunters?ect. Zippo stoves? heaters? camp cook stoves? Hand warmers? Knives? Shirts? Jackets? vests? Cookware? Shoes? The Zippo name has real weight and value and the company should wisely expand on it either through in house manufacturing or licensing. The possibilities are almost endless. It's time to expand the brand beyond lighters.

    They need to improve the hinge and make it stronger so the cover/top stays aligned with the bottom!
