If you have ever wanted an outdoor ashtray that could store both your cutter and lighter and the ash from your cigar, XIKAR has a solution for you.

XIKAR Essence Ashtray

It’s called the XIKAR Essence and the melamine ashtray holds more than just your cigar and its ash. A special compartment has been created in order to store your cutter, lighter and whatever else you might want. It’s 9″ x 9″ x 2 5/16”, the same length and width as square ceramic ashtrays that have featured Oliva and Padrón branding, although the Essence is a bit shorter. Unlike those ashtrays, which only feature four cigar holders, the new XIKAR model has spots for five.

Pricing is set at $24.99 and the company expects to begin shipping them shortly after the 2014 IPCPR trade show and convention, which begins later this month in Las Vegas, Nev.
