Anyone else wanting the solid titanium Zippo to be remade?
From what I could find, the model 110 Solid Titanium Zippo was part of their "Pure" and "Precious Metals" line-up from 2001 to 2006, and at the time, retailed for around $100 (think the price of Ti has come down since then, though Chinese outer sleeve replicas still sell for around $120).
Would love to just buy an original from that period, but due to it now being a collectible, they rarely go up for sale, and even used ones seem to sell for at least a few hundred dollars. At the time they were available, I don't recall ever hearing about them.
Was just wondering if this is something others here were interested in, and if so, would it be something that Massdrop could maybe sway Zippo into remaking? I asked Zippo's customer relations if they could possibly suggest reintroducing it in the future (now that Ti has grown in popularity vs 17 years ago), but only got "at this time, we are not aware of this lighter being produced again." Personally think this would slot in nicely under their $12k solid gold (lol!) and $180 pure sterling models (would probably only be worth $60 imo, but I'm sure some of us would probably still pay double that, given the few alternatives out there).
Would really prefer they made a new solid Ti Zippo Slim (would make a nice alternative to the tiny Ti peanut lighters out there), but would be happy with either Slim or Regular, or both. Dunno.. maybe it's just my OCD compelling me to find a nice Ti lighter to match my Ti watches, knives, flashlights, belt buckles, etc.. =/
