We will go hiking right now, but super last minute Manfred from Feinschmuck gave me a first sample of step one for making a special Zippo. The patina of the brass looks like not well treated parts on a ship in saltwater conditions (Or as Eric once said “angeranzt“). This is only step one, we are still brainstorming what motive shall be included on one of the sides of the Zippo. Suggestions are welcome!
Brand new brass Zippo lighter be-fore being refined by Feinschmuck:
Yesterday I got two brass Zippo lighters ready to be treated by Feinschmuck, let´s see what they can turn them into. I´ll keep you updated as soon as they got their hands on them. I noticed the security warning on the lighter, hmm I have to get my old one but I´m pretty sure thats a new clue – yes a burning flame is hot and fuel spilled hands might burn as well – oh my god!
First test with putting some patina on the Zippo has been done, check the result here.
