    Haha they sure do get expensive if you have to keep replacing them but on the other hand if you keep one zippo for many years it almost pays off to have one. Thats because the task of replacing wicks/flints/fluid is so easy and it sure beats having to always stop at the gas station to pick up a new lighter. Also could be a survival tool although hopefully most zippo owners wont ever need it for that use. Dont forget reliability

    here are my two fav's. you might not be able to tell but the one on the left has "spaz" engraved on it. it used to be very prominent but it was a gift from my girlfriend about three years ago and i've used it pretty much everyday since, so it's definitely faded.

    Well i can defiantly imagine it being faded after 3 years of solid use. Im just kinda starting off my zippo collection but im sure it will steadily grow though. Kinda a zippo newbie lol. Also a invalid link in the pic bro

    Tip: once the flints sparking ability fades (once you have used about the flint) take your flint out and flip the flint over so the new end of the flint is facing the flint wheel then insert the flint back in the lighter and replace the screw.

    With the new/unstruck side of the flint being against the flint wheel the spark will be more efficient. I just flip the flint over when the flint is about half used. If anyone reads and tries this let me know if you see a bigger spark.

    Also, on many models, there is a hole in the felt that holds in the cotton. It's the right size to hold a spare flint so I always keep one there cause nothing sucks more than running out and not having a replacement.

    tappin and a talkin

    Good job pointin that out there spaz. That is one thing that can be very helpful because its nothin worse than striking your zippo and having no spark. Although if you keep a flint in the hole in the felt pad you shouldn't ever be the situation with no spark haha
