The Last V-cutter you'll ever need!
for Xikar VX V-Cut Gunmetal
by in LA...somewhere on April 17, 2013

This is the best v-cutter you'll ever use. Big enough for those tight draw low to mid 50's premiums with dense roll, supersharp wedge cut. Heavy feel, super precision slide. This rounds out your cutter toolbox, and it even has a cigar rest built in!

for Xikar Crystal Humidifier 250 Rectangular
by in virginia on February 10, 2016

Right away it would not keep 70% - average 62%, humidor currently holds about 150 - capacity is are 200 sticks. Used the Xikar solution from the start. It was replacing an order humidifier so the humidor was seasoned and already at 70%.

Need one in your arsinal!
for Xikar Xi1 Black
by Doug in SoCal in LA...somewhere on April 17, 2013

I like this design, super fine control of the cut, nice leather case, if you buy from the right place! Watch the humidity, as the end screws can oxidize, and enjoy! You'll lose this one, or have a buddy "borrow" it before it wears out!

Great Double Guillotine
for Xikar X8 Carbon Fiber Cigar Cutter
by Doug in SoCal in LA...somewhere on April 17, 2013

Again, Xikar rules...top of the mid range cutter market, sharp blades, durable design, little corrosion. Mine has a custom ProCigar 2011 logo(you have to go and see what you are missing ;-)) and is a prized possession. You only need to buy one!

Good flame, poor lid
for Xikar EX Windproof Silver Cigar Lighter
by gilligoon in northwest georgia on December 08, 2015

This lighter has a nice natural flame, is very windproof, substantial and sturdy design, great flame adjustability & butane capacity. The only let-down for me is the flip-top hinge gets sticky and difficult to operate. I have cleaned with alcohol several times, and the action improves with cleaning... but after the first cigar is lit, the hinge is again sticky.

Not for large ring size cigars
for Xikar Xi1 Black
by John Klein in Minnesota on November 30, 2015

I smoke a 58 ring size which barely fits in the opening when fresh out of the box, but generally not if you re trying to refresh the cut when wet. The cutter has poor leverage given the angular design of the blades, and is difficult to slice through a bigger stick. I would not go bigger than 52 or 54 with this cutter. Much prefer the guillotine cutter designs over this.

Imported JUNK
for Xikar Plunge Single Red
by Larry in Fort Scott, KS on September 03, 2010
Verified purchase

This is an imported from China piece of junk. First one worked a week and quit. Famous did send a replacement very fast. It worked fine for a few days but now flame cannot be adjusted and flame cover that flips up when you light the lighter does not close all the way now. This is not the quality I expected from Xikar!!! Will not be buying any more Xikar lighters. Yes, I do use premium fuel and have other lighters that have worked over 5 years with this fuel.

Unique And Excellent
for Xikar Outdoorsmen Gift Pack
by Chris in KS on January 11, 2015

Both of these products are part of the quality that Xikar is known for - the case is strong, unique and seals well with a good, simple, small capacity humidifier which keeps cigars fresh while traveling. The lighter is a little finicky, but once you find where it works based on altitude, it s very hot and lights quickly. The lighter worked very well in Afghanistan at 7000 feet, and I'm sure it would go higher no issues.

They are Right-Junk
for Xikar Rectangular Hygrometer
by DennisW in Los Angeles, CA on November 26, 2014
Verified purchase

Before ordering I read the reviews and, having the older model which is great, thought, Oh, maybe just a couple of defective ones and ordered it anyway, trusting Xikar. They were right. It s JUNK. Came out of the box reading 35% so I was immediately skeptical and put it - together with the older one - to the salt test. It got all the way up to 45% the old style reading correctly 75% . DO NOT BUY THESE.
