Colibri has begun the nationwide shipping of its newest, and perhaps most innovative lighter, the Slide.

While the body design may look familiar, the Slide is unique in that instead of pulling down on the ignition button to get the triple torch flame going, you push up on it, sliding the core of the lighter up as well.

It’s best seen in this video from the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show:

The Slide also features a slide out and locking punch cutter, making it an all-in-one accessory. There are five finishes available: black with red; silver with blue; red with black; blue with black and matte black with chrome, each $59.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
