...but if you must, use a Zippo... We make these in-house, subjecting new brass and chrome lighter cases to some nasty stuff. Multiple heat and acid cycles give them the patina you see here without compromising the integrity of the hing or the internals (when we remember to remove them prior to the acid bath). We then hand-stamp our Bonehead on either a sterling silver or copper disks and weld those to the case. These aren't cheap and we still manage to lose money on each one we sell... They come in two flavors - Freebird is solid brass with a sterling silver disk and Rusty (shown) is brushed chrome with copper disk.
