Here is a amazing trench art knockoff zippo. It has been engraved with a military insignia along with Vietnam Chu Lai 71-72 on the front and 'there is nothing so sweet as the smell of death in the morning.' and another insignia on the back.
In the early in 90's, the tourism to Vietnam increased when diplomatic relations relaxed between the USA and Vietnam. The veterans were the first looking for Vietnam Zippos, part of their memory but mainly their youth. The market turned into a business for young Vietnamese dealers of Saigon and soon fake Zippos came to the market.
It is in used condition but has a new flint and works perfect.
A cool gift for lighter and military collectors alike.
