So this is a follow-up to my original instructable on Zippo tricks, Basic Zippo Tricks
If you've been looking at these wishing your Zippo was up and running then check out my 'ible on Reflinting and Rewicking a Zippo.
This one will cover some more tricks and little things, some a little more difficult and some new takes on previously covered ones.
As with last time I've added a short video on the first and last step to give a visual run-down of all the tricks...
On we go anyway...
Step 1: Slapping Open.
I'll do this with right handed instructions, though if you swap all the rights and lefts about the instructions are the same, it's just a mirror image.
There are two ways to open the Zippo doing this.
Hold the lighter as you would normally, hinge facing away from your wrist, towards the slapping hand.
Now the first way is to bring your hand down while the left comes up and hits the bottom of your hand where the Zippo is, it should simply swing open, if you're having trouble try hitting your hand in a slightly different spot or angle, it needs to be thereabouts parallel to the motion of the lid...
The second way can be a little trickier but is essentially the same, except you hold the lighter up as normal and hit your wrist with the other hand, the reason this one can be harder is that it's instinct to swing your hands together and beyond that there's less momentum involved.
