I picked up one of these in an earlier drop because I didn't have a brass Zippo and wanted one. For any of you out there that love Zippos, please know that the edges of this brass case are so thin they are bordering on sharp. I have around 35 Zippos ranging in age from 1959 through 2012. All of them have that comforting, heavy, "Zippo" feel when I'm holding/using them. In contrast, this brass one here feels cheap and fragile. The hinge action is sorely lacking and I don't think it would hold up to daily use. It looks the part, but it doesn't even sound like a Zippo when it opens. I believe @tlblakburne got it right further down in the comments when they thought it was a replica zippo.
These come direct from Zippo - if you're not 100% happy with yours, we want to make it right and Zippo definitely wants to hear about it. We'd be glad to help you make that happen if you submit a ticket via My Transactions in your profile.
Thanks for letting us know, sorry that yours wasn't perfect, and please do let us know if you'd like to exchange it.
