Last week, Visol Products began shipping three new cigar lighters to stores, expanding its already large catalog of cigar accessory offerings.

The Visol Bison ($20) is a new triple-flame lighter that features a plastic body and two other features: a concave lid that is designed to double as a cigar rest and a built-in punch cutter. It’s offered in three different colors—blue, orange and smoke—and is sold to retailers in packs of 20.

The Visol Elk ($20) is a new single flame torch lighter that is highlighted by one of the more unique features for a cigar lighter: one side of the lighter has a mirror. The Elk measures 1.6 inches x 2.5 x .4 and weighs 2-ounces. It’s offered in five colors:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Gunmetal
  • Red
  • Silver

Visol has also added a new $20 flat flame lighter to its portfolio. The Visol Panther measures 2.8 inches x 1.4 x .4 and weighs two-ounces. It has a side ignition and lid, though there are no other features like a built-in punch or fuel window. It’s also offered in five colors, each with gold accents:

  • Ice Black
  • Ice Blue
  • Matte Black
  • Red
  • Silver

Finally, Visol’s Ferris v-cutter is now offered in black, joining the existing gunmetal option. The Ferris measures 2.7 inches x 1.6 x .5. It has a v-cutter designed to cut up to 60 ring gauge cigars as well as an 8mm punch. The Ferris has an MSRP of $50.
