A new limited edition collection of cigar accessories from XIKAR pays tribute to law enforcement officers and first responders.

Dubbed the Red Line Set and Blue Line Set, each contains the company’s Xi1 cutter with black blades, an ELX lighter and New Wave ceramic ashtray. Both the cutter an ashtray feature the United States flag in black and white with either a blue or red stripe, while the ashtray adds a corresponding single stripe around the base.

XIKAR produced just 500 of each version of the set, which each sell for $179.99. While designed to be sold as a set, XIKAR is allowing stores to sell them individually.

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.
