The Palió Lazio, one of the several new lighters that Quality Importers Trading Co. showed off at the 2022 PCA Convention & Trade Show, is on its way to retailers.

The Lazio is a slim single torch lighter designed to be both pocket- and wallet-friendly, as it comes with an MSRP of $14.99. Most notable about its design is that the flame is angled up and away from the body of the lighter’s metal body.

That flame can be adjusted via a large flame adjuster on the bottom of the lighter, while a large fuel window shows how much butane is left in the tank.

The Palió Lazio is offered in five colors: red, blue, black with a rubberized finish, chrome plated and gunmetal plated.

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.
