Accessory Review: Xikar | HP3 Triple Flame Lighter

Xikar released the HP3 Triple Flame Lighter in 2018 as a followup to 2017’s HP4 quad flame lighter we reviewed and loved here. The lighter uses an in-line configuration of triple flames with the outside jets angled 8 degrees toward the center so they converge into one big flame. The HP3 comes in 4 finishes: Burnt Yellow, Daytona Red, Matte Black and G2. My sample is the Daytona red. The HP3 also features a large adjustment wheel, pull-down ignition, and EZ-View Fuel Window. MSRP is $99.99.

Accessory Review: Xikar | Linea Single Flame Lighter

That brings us to one of the best features.  The price.  The MSRP of the Linea is only $29.99.  And don’t go thinking that this “budget” lighter isn’t still a performer.  Xikar still backs the Linea with a lifetime warranty, just like the other Xikar lighters that cost two or three times as much.  Functionality, efficiency, and reliability all in such a meager price point is not easy to do, but Xikar did it with the Linea.  The Linea is available in Yellow (pictured), Red, Blue, and Black.  It is available where Xikar products are sold, and at

Accessory Review: Xikar | Envoy High Performance Cigar Case

The wow factor in this case comes from the top. It is a metal accent piece with a nice polished finish. The narrow fins with the black contrast insets are meant to mimic the look of the cooling fins on an engine. Just like the cruiser motorcycles that this look is meant to emulate, the contrast of the black leather against the shiny chrome is a classic look. Even with the v-twin styling, this case would also feel at home in the breast pocket of your favorite business suit.

Accessory Review: Xikar | Cigar Locker

I really really like this case, I use it almost exclusively if I am bringing more than 2 cigars anywhere. I love that you can fit everything you need, and then some, to smoke a cigar in one place and not worry about forgetting something. Coming in at $65, this really is a no-brainer, and should be at the top of many Christmas wish lists this season.

Accessory Review: Commonwealth | Cedar Spills and a Giveaway

I used approximately a dozen spills for this review and I have to say that every spill burned consistently. I used both lighting methods I outlined above and never found that the spill overpowered the cigar flavors. When I had the spillbox out on the kitchen counter, my wife saw it and said “That’s pretty cool looking,” so I guess you can say that the ladies dig it as well.
