No other event in history increased the popularity of Zippo lighters more than World War II. From 1943 until the end of World War II, Zippo’s entire production was shipped to Army Exchanges and Naval ship stores for the soldiers in combat around the world.

Because brass and chrome were in short supply, Zippo windproof lighters were made with a porous steel and then coated with a thick black paint that was baked to a black crackle finish. This produced a slightly rough surface and distinguished it as a World War II lighter.

The inside unit was also different from today’s standard issue Zippo lighters. Straight flat sides meet the front and back surfaces with squared edges. The chimney has fewer holes, and a hollow rivet holds the striking wheel in place.
