The Colibri V-Cut is adding a new green color option; like the rest of the line it is priced at $39.

For its value-based Firebird line, Colibri reworked its Illume lighter which debuted in 2016 but had been discontinued recently. It’s a triple-flame torch lighter with a large, translucent fuel window that comes in clear, red, yellow or blue. The carabiner clip at the base of the lighter has been removed, but the tilt-back, single-action ignition and large fuel adjuster wheel remain. The company dropped the price from $14.99 to $9.99.

Rounding out the new accessories is a punch cutter for Firebird, which features a highly-textured plastic body that pulls apart to reveal a good-sized metal punch. The unit can be attached to a backpack or other item via a key ring. It is available in black, red, gray or blue, each priced at $14.99.

All three of the new items are currently shipping to retailers.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
