Vector-KGM Industries has just released the Ironfist, a new angled triple flame lighter designed for quick lighting of a cigar and reliability at high elevations.

It’s a wind-resistant lighter that the company says will work at elevations of up to 14,000 feet above seal level. The Ironfist measures 2.32 inches wide, 1.61 inches long and 3.7 inches tall, while checking in at three-tenths of a pound. Vector says the lighter can produce temperatures of up to 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit, or 1,316 degrees Celsius.

It also features a fold out punch cutter on the both of the lighter and a single-action, push-button ignition that can be locked in place for extended lighting sessions.

It’s offered in five colors: black matte, sparkle black, gunmetal satin, sparkle Blue and Prizm, each priced at $35. It is currently available via Vector’s website, while shipping to retailers is scheduled to begin this week, according to James Park.

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.
