Introduced at the peak of the Cigar Boom 90s, today their patented, Xi Series cigar cutters are used by more cigar smokers than any other cutter making them "the standard" of the industry. And with their "Guaranteed for Life" warranty, XIKAR stands behind their products every step of the way. Whether you're looking for a cigar cutter with the sharpest edges for a perfect cut every time, a trustworthy cigar lighter, or a digital hygrometer that will monitor your cigar humidor with the most accurate information, when it comes to choosing the best in cigar accessories, XIKAR stands head and shoulders above the rest.
In 1994, XIKAR started-out like most entrepreneurial efforts - in a garage that served as a laboratory for the company's founders, Kurt Van Keppel and Scott Almsberger, both engineers and cigar smokers who, at that time found most of the cigar accessories on the market underperforming and/or uninspired. This led to the development of their signature product, the Xi cutter, known for its ergonomic tear drop shape and ultra-sharp stainless steel blades hardened to Rockwell engineering standards. The patented cutters were an instant hit with cigar smokers for their power and squeaky clean cuts. If there were such a thing as a "Cigar Accessory Hall of Fame," Kurt and Scott would be in it for the Xi cutter alone. However, success encouraged them to even more innovation in the areas of cigar lighters, hygrometers, humidification devices, cigar cases, and even ashtrays. Featuring some of the most uniquely-designed tools available to cigar lovers, all XIKAR cigar accessories are made with the finest materials, built to last, reasonably-priced, and backed by the best guarantee in the business.
