It measures 2 3/4 inches tall, 1 1/2 inches wide and 1/2 inch tall, and is available in anodized black, nickel satin, gunmetal satin and a copper satin and black combination, each with an MSRP of $19.99.

Rounding out the trio is the Hummer, a pocket-friendly triple-flame torch that features a single action ignition, fold out cigar punch and fuel window. The housing is metal, and on the bottom is a large flame adjuster to make it easy to dial in the exact size flame that you desire. It measure 2 7/8 inches tall, 1 3/8 inches wide and 7/8 inch thick. It’s available in four colors: ice black and chrome satin; satin nickel; ice red and black; and ice blue and satin chrome. Each are priced at $29.99.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
