What would you get?
Or
Is there a different zippo you would get?

Discussions

mine would be either
Timberwolves-
http://www.lightersales.com/20855-Timberwolves--P164.aspx
or I think this one is cooler -
http://www.lightersales.com/24765-American-Hardcore-Wolf-P916.aspx
but I like the first as it is engraved where as the seconded it is just printed on...
(oh yeah - that site is good - cheaper than the zippo museum)

but I am tempted to buy either a standard silver (chrome) or a black one and engrave/etch it myself
does anyone know of a good way to do that? - I think engraving would be tricky as you would have to not cut too deep (>

Are Zippos for trick or smoking?!?

Well, I found a couple I like. I have to convince my parents to let me have a Zippo because, well, every man has a Zippo and I'm starting puberty. It's my right! I don't smoke, I just want it to carry around in my back pocket like a big boy.

But back on topic, The ones I would get would be:
Anarchy(Because it's cool:))
Anarchy, as well(I like this one, too)
Circuit board (I wouldn't actually get this, but it is really geek-esque)
Flame(Very basic, I love it.)
Black Matte logo(I like this one, too)
HazMat(This one is cool)
Black Ice(I like!)
Black Ice w/logo(I like more!)
Click the link(I like this one the most!!!!)

Which, of the above, do you like the most, guys?

I have the Hazmat one and I really like it, I think you should go with that or the blackice, they are the coolest

And what does anarchy mean? I see that symbol everywhere.

Anarchy: absence of government/authority

I ain't Payin 8000 for a Lighter!!! I like HazMat

Hmm... I don't think it matters, as long as it works. =o

Just my opinion.

get a plain one and engrave it yourself !!

I just have the brushed Zippo. I really don't care about the picture as long as it works.

. In my experience, paint doesn't hold up well on a lighter - even a high-quality Zippo. That black background on the dragon design is gonna look pretty crappy after a few months in your pocket with loose change and a knife. . Personally, I like the Ace of Spades - won't look too bad as it wears away.

A friend of mine has had a black zippo for probably almost a year now. He carries a knife in his pocket along with his zippo, and the paint hasn't been scraped off from what I've seen. Maybe he didn't carry it with him for a while, but that's just what I've seen. Personally, I'd get the hidden dragon.

. OK Maybe it's just me. Guess I ought to close my knife before I put it back in my pocket.

i ilke the ace of spades and the last one. Its hard to choose 1 zippo of what, (about) 125+ differnet painted ones?

get the one that says i have issues

I like the spectrum ones
