Some things go together; they just do. Invariably, in the front right pocket of our jeans you will find an old lighter and a pocketknife.
To keep it simple we went with what we know to work and never quit. The lighter is a solid brass, US-made Zippo with Sean Starr's bonehead stamped on a sterling silver disk. The knife is a small, Japanese-made (2" closed) Higo, with brass handle and soft-iron blade. Both pieces are hand-finished at our shop, and no two will look the same.
Zippos will run forever, just add fuel and replace wick and flint as needed (supplied). The knife sharpens extremely well, and be sure to wipe it with a drop or two of oil.
In addition to the Zippo and Higo, the kit also includes enough supplies to keep your Zippo going for years to come: lighter fluid, wick, and flint. It is boxed in an old cigar box. These are made to order and may take a few extra days to ship.
