XIKAR has announced two new lighters for the company’s High Performance Collection: HP3 and Turismo.

The Turismo lighter was actually leaked a couple months ago by Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac, whose company is getting an exclusive colorway. It’s a double flame lighter, which comes in an all-metal body highlighted by a pair of grip-enhancing side panels. In addition to RoMa Craft’s version, it is offered in four color finishes: Matte Black, Matte Red, Matte Blue and Matte Gray.

It is priced at $59.99.

As the name suggests, the HP3 is an inline triple flame lighter, with the two outer jets angled by eight degrees towards the center jet. The body has been designed with what the company describes as “sharp lines and aggressive curves” that enhance ergonomics and grip.

The HP3 is being offered in four finishes, Burnt Yellow, Daytona Red, Matte Black and G2, which is a gunmetal grey color. It’s priced at $99.99.

Both lighters will be shown off at next week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and will ship to stores later this month.

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 Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
