Zippos from Vietman

This brilliant article here documents Zippos found in the fields of Vietnam. Its pretty poignant considering most of the owners of these never made it home and this is how these amazing photos have made it here. There is something very ritualistic about owning a zippo and I still remember the smell and sound of my old brass faithful that accompanied me everywhere when I was a smoker.

I’ve shamelessy re blogged this from Silodrome, which you should all visit.
