Accessory Review: Xikar | High Performance Gift Set

The is a combination of one existing product in a new finish and a new product packaged together and in a new finish. Those products are the 5x64 Lighter in the Full Throttle finish, and the 11mm.

Regular readers of this site will know that I am in love with the lighter, and you can read my original review here. This version is much the same except for the finish, which has a racing-stripe feel to it and matches well with the included . Performance-wise, this is the same as the original and is great. The only physical difference is that the adjustment wheel is rubberized, which has a good feel to it. As far as the new look, it’s beautiful and goes very well as a set.

The is a very nice punch, and does have some unique features to it. Besides looking like a spark plug and having that same racing-stripe look, it actually has two depths you can choose from when punching a cigar. It clicks once at about 2mm out and again at about 4mm, so you can choose how deep to punch your stick. The blade is very sharp and does a good job of removing the cap cleanly as you can see from the picture. I used it to punch a 48rg cigar which is pushing the limits of the size I would use this on. Anything thinner would be challenging with its 11mm size. It also comes with a keyring in case you want to attach it to something like a herfador, or keys.

This is a great set both in appearance and performance and would make a great gift or starter set. I highly recommend this product, just most other products. The set has a retail price of $129 which I think is reasonable for the quality you get and the lifetime guarantee that makes awesome.
