By now, most of you should be quite familiar with the various top of the line cutters Xikar has to offer. If not, I strongly suggest looking into them because you’re missing out. The company has extended their talents of top-notch, luxury cigar accessories into the realm of wind-proof, butane torch lighters. A series of inexpensive lighters to give you a quick and easy light every time.
The Executive was built with the following in mind: quality, functionality, sophistication, and affordability. The sleek body of the Executive places the ignition button on the side for a more comfortable feel. The single action ignition opens the lid to reveal a dependable wind-proof flame.
And as an added bonus, these Xikar Executive lighters come handsomely branded with the CI Smiley logo. A winner to the bone.
I got the lighter free with a box of Don Rafael Maduros. The cigars were well worth the price, and the free lighter put the deal over the top. I charged it with gas, adjusted it and it works great. I carry a single flame in my pocket and the Xikar is my go to for lighting 60 ringers. It really does a nice job. It's comfortable in the hand and almost always lights on the first stroke. It has a flip open punch cutter on the bottom. The cutter could be a whisker longer as it sometimes doesn't reach through all the layers of the cap for a clean cut. I really like it and so have all who have used it. When CI throws it in for free it 's crazy good.
