Xikar burst on the scene with game-changing cigar cutters favored by cigar lovers around the world. So, it was only natural that Xikar would unveil a line of cigar lighters to pair with the legendary cutters. As with Xikar cutters, each Xikar lighter embodies the Xikar team's passion for blending cutting-edge innovation with everyday functionality and value.

The Xikar Story

Cigar aficionado Kurt Van Keppel was increasingly frustrated by the lack of reliable cigar cutters on the market. Van Keppel took the adage "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself" to heart when he teamed up with his friend, design engineer Scott Almsberger, to create the ultimate cigar cutter.

Months of research and development spawned a cutter that perfectly mixed modern design and materials with user-friendly versatility. Before the cutter could be shared with the world and launch the company to the highest levels of industry prestige, Van Keppel and Almsberger had to settle on a name for their new venture.

To properly name their cutting-edge creation, Van Keppel and Almsberger turned to the past and the Taino people who flourished throughout the Caribbean at the time of Christopher Columbus' arrival in the New World. Columbus' entourage and those that followed described the Taino people smoking what we now know was tobacco placed in corn husks or palm leaves.
Taino people were said to have called their unique smokes "sikars" or what would eventually become "cigars" as we know them now. Van Keppel and Almsberger swapped out the 'S' for an 'X' to give it a contemporary look and sound, a decision that has helped make Xikar one of the world's most recognized cigar accessory brands today.

With the Xikar name in place, the cutter, now dubbed the Xikar Xi-1, was unleashed upon the world. The cutter proved to be a blockbuster that forever changed the cigar accessory industry. Building on the Xi-1 cutter's success, Van Keppel and Almsberger continued to grow the Xikar cigar cutter product line, as well as other innovative cigar smoking accessories, always with an eye on durability, functionality, and value. This holds especially true of Xikar's wide range of lighters.
