Armor Facet Collectible of the Year

SKU: 29151-000001


Zippo's 2016 Collectible of the Year, Armor Facet, is engraved to the edge, over the edge, and around the entire lighter with the new 360° MultiCut process. Zippo owner, George Duke, selected the 2016 Collectible of the Year to debut the 360° MultiCut engraving process and a new era of luxury Zippo designs. 

The 2016 Collectible of the Year is an Armor lighter with a band of engraved facets around the lighter that makes the chrome sparkle like jewelry on the Satin Chrome finish. The famous Zippo flame is engraved into the right side of the lighter, which adds a distinctive touch. Each lighter is consecutively numbered and authenticated with the exclusive Zippo Limited Edition bottom stamp.

All Zippo windproof lighters are american made in our Bradford, PA factory.


Imprint Methods:

Brite Cut

Brite Cut

Limited to Armor cases only, bright-cut engraving produces dazzling high and low facets, resulting in the dimensional look of a beautiful emblem directly on the surface.

Crisp deep carve engraving produces a gently undulating pattern with the look of a high quality emblem directly on the surface.

Two-Tone Rotary Process

Two-Tone Rotary Process

Produced for the first time on Brushed Chrome Armor, the deep carve, two-tone rotary process creates a tactile, emblem-like surface with definitive brass highlights.

Deep Carve/Epoxy Inlay

Deep Carve/Epoxy Inlay

Zippo has achieved a striking multi-faceted dimensional look, without the additional weight and bulk of an attached emblem. An Armor case is deep carved and plated, then selectively epoxy filled for dramatic color accents.

Clear, marbled or solid epoxies can be inlayed into deep cavities by highly skilled artisans.

Only the chrome Armor cases can be color-filled as the color-fill scratches the gold plating.


Armor Case


Armor case featuring rounded corners and top with a flat bottom. Armor lighter cases are about 1.5 times as thick as a standard brass case.

A five-barrel hinge joins the top and the bottom of this case; same as current Zippo lighter.

Armor Insert


The Armor lighters use the standard, current insert unit with 16 holes in the chimney (8 per side).

Armor Bottom Stamp

Bottom Stamp

Distinctive bottom stamp authenticates these chrome and solid brass lighters as Heavy-Walled Armor.
