Has anyone tried it? I heard it was similar to pen spinning and plan to try it out after buying a zippo on ebay :)

hope ya smoke... would look a bit odd playing with a lighter but not smoking lol....

i know a few tricks, but the only thing that sucks is having your hands smell like lighter fluid after playing with it for awhile.

lol...

but still, it ain't worth it if there's no flame... it's like the conclusion of the trick - to do the fips and such and end it with a successful light (We all know that Zippos never light on the first try lol - see Four Roomswith Tim Roth, the last sketch)


btw - hope ya get a really good deal, or a nice design you can't find anywhere... and see if you get the papers that come with it. the Zippo company usually has a lifetime warrante/guarentee on them - which is always a plus. ya never know when the hinge will come loose, or whenever you need replacement parts (flint, the wheel, the cotton, etc.)

but good luck and post some pics of your new found tricks :D

I carry a Zippo but don't smoke. Call it a primal instinct, the desire to be able to make fire when necessary. I just do one or two easy tricks, nothing fancy.
