    "What's new?" is something our team gets asked daily through
social media, customer service or even at events. The answer for
XIKAR is, "What isn't new?" XIKAR's focus on quality and continuous
improvement is obvious throughout our new product offerings.
Our design team is constantly hard at work to bring you the
next great thing in cigar accessories whether it's a current product
upgrade or a brand new launch. We will now introduce 
cool new products to make your smoking experience more
enjoyable all year long, not just at IPCPR.
    For example, we have just released a new double jet flame lighter. 
As you will read below, our popular Enigma lighter is now redesigned
as the Enigma II. This new model has an amazing new feel/power in your hand. Check in with your local XIKAR retailer to pick one up and feel for yourself.  
   Also, stay tuned for an exciting new product launch coming soon! We have been working hard to develop a humidification product that will make the hobby even more simple for you to relax and enjoy. 
    Perhaps the best closing in answering the "what's new" question is always stay tuned. You won't have to wait long to get more truly innovative new products from XIKAR.

Winner of the 1,000th Mammoth Xi3 and Newest Hall of Fame member!

     XIKAR is proud to announce the winner of our 1,000th Fossil Mammoth Ivory Xi3 cutter, Don McDowell of Mokena, IL! Don purchased the Xi3 for $905 in our auction benefiting Cigars for Warriors. "The cause made me bid! I did it to honor my son and his 'brothers and sisters' who serve our country. My soon served in the US Army and was deployed then returned safely twice from Iraq," said Don.
    Don currently works in Software Sales Enablement and teaches sales teams how to be successful selling their solutions. However, he always finds time during the week to meet with friends to enjoy a good stick. One of his favorite places to smoke is with his better half, Roz, on the deck with a bottle of wine or at the Humidor in Downers Grove, IL.
   "The first XIKAR product I bought was an Xi cutter about 10 years ago and I still use it today. I choose XIKAR over the rest because of the outstanding quality," said Don.
