Flat flame lighters are now some of my favorite lighters, and this one started it for me! This is by far one of the coolest and most useful lighters in my collection, it is beautifully built and lights even larger ring gauges with ease due to its broad flame. I also love that the top is mirrored so I can get an idea of if I missed a spot as I light. All that said, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, the gun metal is super shiny and an absolute finger print magnet. It is just something you will have to get used to, because as soon as you touch it, it will be covered. and secondly, this specific lighter can be a little finicky, the main thing with them is they HAVE to be purged before refilling, otherwise they become somewhat unreliable, and the xikar fuel absolutely works best in them it seems to work best in all my lighters, but its definitely more important on this one with Vector fuel I was getting about 75-80% rliability, but also had to have the flame pretty high, with xikar fuel I get nearly 100% rliability, and can have the flame set to about 1/4 turn up. 10/10 would buy again!
I love this lighter t works every time!
First off, this is a substantial lighter. Solid, quality, heavy, beautiful. Easy to operate, very nice flat flame which makes toasting the foot very easy. My torch lighters are so concentrated, it was easy to muck up the foot. You literally paint with the flame.... beautiful. Also, the polish on the top of the lighter allows you to see the foot as you light the cherry. Mine needs a refill, which is easy... and I do love the large flame adjustment knob. Xikar products never disappoint.
Excellent lighter and cigars and using the should I smoke this discount is awesome, thanks
A competent lighter at a great price.
I hope to get many years from this famous brand lighter. I like the three flames over the four flame.
Xikar is a good company and I own many of their cutters. This is only my 2nd lighter from them and my first double flame lighter. I like it a lot and think 2 flames are usually better than 1 unless i m smoking a smaller cigar. Either way, very happy with the product and you will be too!
Light my cigars with a laser precision.
I've had this lighter for a few months, and it has been great. It lights reliably with a consistent flame. If I had to come up with a complaint, I would say it burns too much butane, but isn't that the point? Three jets and lots of heat... bring your cigar to the light slowly, and keep a spare bottle of butane around.
Another great product from Xikar. The quality, feel, and ease of operation are excellent. Would recommend.
