I own 5 Xikar lighters and 4 of them died within 6 months, to include this model. Xikar has the best warranty on the market but you need to own at least 2 so that you have one to use while the other is in the mail getting repaired or replaced. When this lighter was working it worked best on large ring cigars. With its triple jets I swear you can weld light metals with it.
