XIKAR has announced a new single flame version of its cylindrical Turrim lighter that it will be bringing to market in the near future.

The aptly named Turrim Single is the same size as a 4 1/2 x 50 cigar, a bit shorter and thinner than the original Turrim, which debuted in late 2014 and measures 5 x 64. It retains many of the same features, however, including an extended fuel tank as well as XIKAR’s Ratcheting Fuel Adjustment System and EZ-View™ Red Fuel Window technology to effortlessly view and control flame capacity.

“The unique cylindrical shape and exclusive features of the Turrim Double lighter led it to be an instant success among smokers who enjoy the style of their accessory as much as their cigar” said Scott Almsberger, XIKAR evp and chief design officer, via a press release. “The addition of the single flame model offers a condensed size and enhanced precision flame, packing all the power you’d expect from a XIKAR lighter.”

The XIKAR Turrim Single is available in four finishes, black, vintage bronze, silver, and G2, a gunmetal finish with gunmetal trim. It will start shipping this week and comes priced at $49.99.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
