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.
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.
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 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.
The Armor lighters use the standard, current insert unit with 16 holes in the chimney (8 per side).
Distinctive bottom stamp authenticates these chrome and solid brass lighters as Heavy-Walled Armor.
