Jeshii points out Tab-Dock, the Japan-only "mint dispenser that replaces the lighter assembly in a Zippo. Seems silly and not something that is going to win you friends, but might be a funny way to be a total dick to your smoking friends."
Replace mints with smoking cessation gum for moralistic asshole++ points.
Excuse to carry around zippo shell to play around with? I’ve honestly heard “I smoke so I can carry around a lighter” from a real person before.
Although it looks like the mint dispensing mechanism is bound to the lid flipping and not to a strike wheel, so if you try to do zippo tricks you’re going to have a flying mint barrage.
It’s cooler than a tictac box.
I wonder if it rattles.
Jeez, 6800 yen = ~$70 for that? Thats a lot of packs of altoids.
Too late for Disco Biscuits to apply for entry?
The disco biscuit comment prompted me to look at prices.
Or Â£50 to me.
Without shipping or anything…
Zippos are incredibly popular here in Japan as collectors items even amongst non smokers. There was even a series of Zippos for Metal Gear Solid & Policenauts and probably man other video games as well.
