The Replica lighters have been a popular model with customers since their first release in 1988. Several models have been created over the years and 3 models continue to be produced; 1935 Replica, Vintage Lighter, and 1941 Replica.
All Zippo windproof lighters are American made in our Bradford, PA factory.
Introduced in 2001 in Japan and 2002 globally, several distinctive characteristics distinguish the 1941 Replica from today's familiar Zippo windproof lighter. The 1941 case has flat planes with sharper, less rounded edges where the front and back surfaces meet the sides. The lid and the bottom are joined with a four-barrel hinge, just as they were on the original 1941 design. The current Zippo lighter has a five-barrel hinge.
The inside unit closely replicates the design of the original 1941 model inside unit. Like the outside, the sides of the inside unit are flatter, with squared edges where they meet the front and back surfaces. The inside unit has fewer holes in the chimney, and is also fitted with a hollow rivet that holds the striking wheel in place.
