Kansas City, MO – June 17, 2014 XIKAR, Inc. introduces the Allume, their latest single jet flame lighter. This model builds on XIKAR’s long history of design, elegance and engineered performance with its small, sleek body and eight stylish colors.

The Allume single flame side squeeze lighter is a top quality lighter with sexy form, sleek feel and superior function. This dynamic lighter is available in the US in Tuxedo (Black), Steel (Silver), Alpine (White), Electric (Yellow), Riot (Red), Crush (Orange), Imperial (Purple) and Stealth (G2). At just 1.3 inches wide, 2.15 inches tall and a mere .5 inch thick, the Allume easily fits into any pocket virtually unnoticed.

“XIKAR is excited to expand our family of lighters. The addition of the Allume adds a smaller accessory option and a new variety of bold colors for the consumer,” said Kurt Van Keppel, CEO and Founder of XIKAR.  “We value the feedback we receive from consumers who demanded more colors and smaller accessories. The Allume satisfies both of these needs; we are confident it is going to be one of our top sellers,” continued Mr. Van Keppel.

Questions regarding this announcement can be directed to Kurt Van Keppel, CEO or VP of Sales, David Frazier.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, XIKAR is the leading cigar accessory brand.  Creator of the revolutionary and iconic Xi1 cutter, XIKAR sells product in thousands of retail locations around the world.
In 1995, Kurt Van Keppel wanted to buy a good cigar cutter, but found that both the inexpensive and high-end models underperformed.  So, he set out with Scott Almsberger to match good design (ergonomics and function) with the best styling and materials.  The result was the Xi cutter, launched in 1997.
