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.
