A Brass no 5 lighter, no date and no Manufacturer. This design was around for a long time and made by different company's.
I have seen some made by smoke stone in japan.
I have read that the Orlik company was the first to make this lighter in the 1930s in Austria.

This isn't all of my lighters. I've got a dollar store Zippo knock-off that I haven't used in years, and a Bowers lighter that is currently in a display case at my nephew's school.

Top left: Dunhill Service. I had one a year or two ago that worked great, and lost it. So I bought a new one, and it doesn't work very well at all.

Top right: Clipper. This is one of my every day lighters. All the conveniance of a BIC, but refillable.

Bottom left: Thoro-Lite. My first pipe lighter. I don't use it much, though. It doesn't hold much fuel, and it holds the flame high enough above the bowl that you have to draw really hard to light it.

Bottom right: IMCO Triplex Junior. Probably my favorite lighter. It looks cool, lights every time, and you can pull the fuel chamber out and use it as a pipe lighter.

I also have a cheap torch lighter that I got as a freebie from a cigarette company, but I didn't get a picture of that one.

Thanks, Nortac. That's probably less than half of the Zippos, I think it stands at around 130

Here's my today lighter. I have 2 more in red and black. About the size of a pack of,cigs, triple flame jet. It doubles as a garage door opener, if your garage door won't open, you just set it on fire

Good eye, One Cut (except they're on the left). That's about 10 of the nicer shape razors I've got, don't use them, they just sit there looking pretty

I must have 200 Zippos, mostly Navy and space. Seems to go with the fountain pens and DE razors ...

I also post at ZEN (Zippo Enthusiast Network.

Let's see if this works. It's of a pegboard rack I made. Holds 14 full-size across, and there are 15 rows, so ... holds 210.

This is an older photo, so less. However one row is Slims, so more. It's full up pretty much now.
