Accessory Discussion / Reviews>In the market for lighter and cutter
IrishBoi 02:30 PM 08-17-2020
So the humi is marinating. It has 9 more days or so to go. In order to pass the time I figure I need to get a lighter and cutter set. Ive owned Xikar and Colibri in the past. Anyone have any suggestions? Im looking to spend about $200 for a set. I found these but dont know anything about them. Im guessing if they are teamed up with AF then they should be quality. I just dont know.

I’ve bought many (too many) expensive lighters over the years; they work for awhile and then stop. I now buy inexpensive lighters and am much happier overall.

I spent good money on nice cutters — and still have them. Mostly Xikar, but others as well. I’ve also bought some nice ashtrays and these also hold up well.

My :-) is to save the money on lighters and spend it on cigars.

Yeah, most of my best lighter have either been cheap or free bonus ones thrown into cigar purchases. Besides, lighting a two-buck stogie with an expensive flame just seems silly. :-)

I buy the ultra cheap lighters and they generally last me years of daily use. I generally go for the somewhat 90 degree cutters as they hold a ton of fuel and fit in the hand nice. A fleabay search for "Honest Lighter Torch Butane" finds them. On the same one now for 3 years of daily use. I'd like to hit the $1/year cost LOL

Cutters, The Xikar M8 cutter has been my go to for years...

I am like Jack and the others regarding lighters, buy 'em cheap and spend the money on cigars.

I buy these....10 for less than $20. Even if there's a couple duds, 10 will last me 2 years plus.

Well I did buy the prometheus set. One because I like expensive things. Second Im def a sucker for SN items. Third this will just be a house set. Im leaning towards a Xikar cutter for daily use and either whatever i get for free (box purchase, coupon code...) or just some sort of lighter for daily use

I'm sorry did someone say something? Sorry jack I'm not hungry

In all fairness...I purchased the set before there was a response. Due to the limited number left, I picked one up before i knew. I didn't want them to be gone and regret it. After hearing from y'all i now realize I made a mistake lol. So with lightning speed I had to justify my actions to a disapproving crowd lol. I promise I will do better

Just kidding brother. No offense was intended. We were just letting you know some of the trials and tribulations we have gone thru in the collective decades we have been on the ever so slippery slope. Always hard to gauge across the internet.

Was actually looking forward to a review of the set. Take care!

No offense taken at all. What y'all said was very true I just got impatient is all. That tends to happen when the wife says i can spend money. I better spend it before she changes her mind
