The EPEAK, a new single flame torch lighter from Vector-KGM, is on its way to retailers.

Designed as “the next evolutionary step” of the Vector Epic that was released in Feb. 2019 and since discontinued, the EPEAK has a cylindrical body style with a push button ignition. It also features a flame adjustment lever and flame lock button that allows the lighter to stay burning without the ignition needing to be pressed. For additional functionality, the EPEAK comes with a detachable base stand.

The company says that the EPEAK will work at elevations unto 12,000 feet above sea level. It measures 7.3″ x 1.2″ x 1.2″ and weighs in at .26 pounds.

The EPEAK is available in six color options for the central matte rubber piece: gray, silver, copper gold, black, blue and red, each with an MSRP of $35.

Update (Dec. 7, 2019) — Vector-KGM has renamed the EPEAK to the VEPEAK.

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.
