Colibri was surprisingly quiet with announcements before the show, not letting any details out about what the company had in store for this year’s PCA Convention & Trade Show. It wasn’t for lack of having new products, however, as the company is adding a pair of new lighters as well as an interesting new colorway for one of its core collections and expanding the offerings of an accessory you might not think about. Beyond that, the company has a new logo.
As for the company’s booth, it is familiar from years past, with a couple of large display panels showing off lifestyle images while display cases showed off the actual products. In the middle of those were several seating areas that allow for retailers to meet with the company’s sales representatives and place their orders. Of note, the company decided not to send any of its office staff to the trade show, opting to have the booth staffed by its sales reps.
The Ascari is a new triple-torch lighter that offers an integrated dual punch on its backside, as well as a large flame adjuster on the base of the lighter. It’s not the flashiest of lighters, but it certainly earns consideration for an everyday carry as it offers plenty of flame, and if you prefer a punch cutter, you’ve got a pair from which to choose. It’s offered in five colors: black, silver, blue, red and green.

The Aura is one of the more interesting lighters I’ve seen on the floor, as this long, slender lighter offers a flat flame. I didn’t get a precise measurement, but I’d say it’s about 10 inches long, which certainly isn’t pocket-friendly, but would make for an interesting table lighter. It could also double as a versatile household lighter if you use a lot of candles or have a frequently used fireplace. It’s available in six colors: black, white and rose gold, black and rose gold, blue, chrome, and rose gold.

Colibri Leather Pouch
If you look in the center of the ashtray, you will notice a leather pouch, which the company has updated in a couple of ways. First, there are now two sizes available, referred to as large and extra large, and it’s available in blue, brown, black and red. You’ll be seeing them in the not too distant future as a way to protect your favorite lighter.
