Zippo Fire Starter




Introduction: Zippo Fire Starter

I found a regular zippo and took out the shuff inside and the wick and glued a small nail head into the wickhole. Then i cutted of a piece of the metal that holds the striking wheel, so its better to place and remove the charcloth. I filed it with charctoth and sprayed it grey for a better look. It's great for making fire on trips in the forrest and other plases to, as i like to make fire not just by striking a match or light a BIC.
