After a soft launch last fall, XIKAR has begun shipping its newest cutter and lighter nationally.

The XIKAR M8 is a heavier metal version of the company’s X8 guillotine cutter. It retails for $49.99 and is offered in bead blast, chrome silver and gunmetal finish.

In addition, the all new dual flame lighter, the XIKAR 5×64 Turrim will be on shelves nationally shortly. It’s also offered in three finishes—black, G2 and silver—and is priced at $79.99. The lighter is unique in that it features a 3.6g fuel capacity, dual fuel windows and a heavy notched base that serves as the flames adjustment.

Retailers who participated in XIKAR’s Innovation program will be the first amongst the latest batch to receive the new items. Approximately 60 stores have been carrying the products since late 2014.
