Xikar Escalade Double Flame Silver
XIKAR reliability, ergonomic design, and mighty twin torch action presented in beautiful brushed silver is what you get, and more, in this XIKAR Escalade cigar lighter. Durable housing, a textured ignition trigger, fuel window, affordable price, and a LIFETIME WARRANTY, all add up to a great buy.
My first lighter was a cheap plastic no name deal with some spray chrome on it. That lighter still works.. I've had two of these, the first one quit on me within a week so I brought it back to my tobacconist who gave me another one. That one lasted 3 months and all the paint had chipped off of it before it stopped working entirely. The most rigorous use these things had was riding in my pocket. Lifetime warranty Schmifetime warranty. Trashcan.
Bought this lighter to replace yet another "less than a year old cigar lighter that wasnt worth the money I paid for it" and hope I wont have to use the Xikar lifetime warranty anytime soon. The Escalade has a huge fuel tank and was used to light more than 25 cigars on a recent cigar factory trip before it needed refilling. So far I love this lighter, it has it all, dual flames for a quick, even light, a large tank so refills are not frequent and the Xikar warranty.
IF it lights, it's not bad. I had mine less than a week before it got really bad. They are very inconsistent at their best. It lit about once for every 8 or 9 tries for the first fill. Then it just wouldn't light. returned for service. 2 weeks later, it lit for on fill and quit again. If you want a good lighter, keep looking. And let me know when you find one.
