There are plenty of triple-flame torch lighters, but a triple soft flame lighter is more or less unheard of, until now.

XIKAR has announced that it will begin shipping the new XIKAR Meridian, a triple soft flame lighter, next month. It comes in an octagonal shape with a large roller ball in the front of the body. That roller moves the flint which sparks three different streams of butane to create a very large soft flame.


It is priced at $149.99 and will be offered in six color options:

  • Black with gunmetal accents
  • Gunmetal with gunmetal accents
  • Red with gunmetal accents
  • Blue with gunmetal accents
  • Black with gold accents
  • Black with rose gold accents

The company also says the Meridian has a fuel window that shows the level in red for easier viewing and a large fuel adjuster.

XIKAR will sell replacement flints for $4.99 per pack of 10.
