Posted:noodles, doe sit not matter about what type of material it is, surly it need sto be a special alloy to cause the anodisation beneath the surface?

much like the images burnt into the inside fo crystals.


also a zippo has on its base a single letter, thats the note that the lid makes when it opens, and if you add a plate to it, you ruin the note

Posted:The cost isn't to bad really. We were quoted 12.50 for a 12" x 4" plaque in two colours.
As for the material I'm not sure as to the exact science behind it but the way the guy was discribing it they can do it on almost anything.

Posted:What do you mean "high end zippo"? Zippo uses the same design for all their refillable lighters, except the butane ones, of course. Plus they'll fix them for free if you break them.

Posted:ahh, but you can get cheper ones, as opposed to the "24.99" ones...

AND you can get the larger, original ones that DON'T break at the hinges.

Posted:All you're buying is the finish in the more expensive ones. If the hinges break, you send it in, they replace it, you go away happy. I've had mine for two years and it the hinges have yet to break.

Posted:Well, that is most likely because poi is not actually very popularily known sadly. If there was a Poi Zippo, that would indeed be awesome, and I know i would buy it. HoP could definetely market there own zippo style lighter or mini blow torch, that would make a fair amount of money!

after purchasing the lighters, getting them all customosed, and packaged, shipped and so on, it might not be as cheep as you think

else, mal would have source it by now

as there is a whole series of things to think about...

Posted:well, personally i think with a HoP member list of over 35 000 you could probably get Zippo to release an official HoP Lighter. Especially if it was marketed and pubilised as a "safe and responsable use of fire" kinda thing.
