Zippo has pushed their own boundaries with the release of their ‘Blu Range’ of Zippo lighters, and have yet again set precedent with this amazing product!
Whilst trawling the internet to find a unique Zippo that not only functioned superbly but also looked good I came across the Zippo Blu Gold Hologram lighter that in my eyes stood out from the rest of the many patterns and designs that Zippo are famous for. The pictures on the internet painted a really good picture of how the lighter would look, how it might function and how it would feel to hold, and on receiving it i was not disappointed to say the least.
It came in a stunning Zippo blu themed black box with the logo printed on to the front of the packaging which made me realise i would be looking at something extremely special. On opening the box i was hit by the true beauty of this masterpiece as the 18k gold plated hologram reflected the daylight from every angle. On picking the lighter out of the box i noticed how light it was and how it sat snuggly in my hand’s grip and felt comfortable to hold.
The gold hologram attracts you as soon as you look at it and is a great feature of this lighter. My next task was to fill the Zippo up with Zippo blu approved butane fuel which i found to be extremely straight forward and easy to do. One thing you notice with the Zippo blu range is that the fuel reservoirs are larger than normal and hold a lot of butane gas meaning there is longer intervals between refills.
After filling, I flipped the lid on the flameless lighter where the beauty of the Zippo click came into effect, only Zippo Lighters make this wonderful sound; i then flicked the flint down towards me and was met with a stunning powerful blu torch flame that would in my eyes most probably melt metal! It really is an amazing sight!, This Zippo lighter is extremely good value for money taking into account the pure quality of the product and how amazing it looks, no other lighter would have a chance in a beauty contest with this awesome product.
My overall verdict is that if your looking for a high quality multi use lighter that is backed by a lifetime guarantee, looks amazing and does what it says on the tin, you can’t go far wrong with the Zippo blu gold hologram lighter and you will be without doubt the envy of everyone who sets eyes on this awe inspiring product.
