1977 Scrimshaw "THE OUTRIGGER"
One of the more rare lighters in my collection is this 1977 "Outrigger"
This style was not a production model.
In 1976 / 77 Zippo test marketed this lighter, along with two other styles using real Scrimshaw, but due to the high cost of manufacturing, dropped the line and later manufactured similar models made from acrylic.
There are only 4 of these (in this design) know to me .
Each one different in subtle ways as they were carved by hand and never mass produced.
Vintage Abercrombie & Fitch / ZIPPO
Hand chased, 14&18k Gold gilded ( Gilt ) case
NOTE, I have seen a handfull of these. Some websites suggest there is only one, but that is not correct
