After making your cut, hold your cigar at an angle over the flame, turning slowly—but not taking a draw—until the cigar is fully and evenly lit.
Designed to stand the test of time with a classic houndstooth pattern and the highest-end lighter technology.
The Xikar Forte Soft Flame Lighter is equipped with an EZ-View red fuel window that allows you to see the lighter’s fuel level at any time. When the fuel is low, it’s easy to refill with a Xikar Butane refill canister.
Careful to never let the cigar and a hard flame touch, slowly rotate your cigar at an angle over your lighter, not taking a draw until the cigar is fully lit.
The phosphorus tip on matches, candles, or any oil-fueled lighters can compromise the cigar’s taste and integrity through contamination. Butane lighters are neutral and more suitable for cigars.
