Kurt's Corner

   All of us at XIKAR are sad to see summer go, but are thrilled that the fall season is upon us! Autumn surrounds us with cool and crisp weather (perfect for smoking!), bright and festive colors and one of America’s favorite past times: football.

And just like your undying passion for your favorite team, the 12th Man cutters are guaranteed for life!

XIKAR U Cellophane Wrappers and Storage

So I am new to the humidor world and just curious,  you take the cigars out of the wrappers when putting them in the humidor correct?
--Eric B., Facebook
 "You will hear different answers from different people, some insisting that their answer is the best for various reasons. Each method of storage has its advantages and disadvantages, and I’ll take you through them, and you can make a decision for yourself." Our friends at Blind Man's Puff explain the advantages and disadvantages of storage methods with cigar cellophane wrappers.

Leaving it On Advantages:

  • Freshness
  • "Marrying"

Taking it Off Advantages:

Testimonial of the Month

I just wanted to give my own testimonial to the quality and durability of your products. My first product from XIKAR was a Stratosphere lighter that I bought in late summer. Through the fall I took part in many herfs with the lighter but around New Years Eve I lost track of it. I thought it was due to theft. Fast forward to spring and my girlfriend found it outside in the driveway. It must've fallen out of my pocket at one point and was lost in the 5 inches of snow we in Pennsylvania manage to get. It was underneath her car somehow so this lighter survived negative degree weather for months as well as we can only assume occasionally being run over from her pulling in and out of the driveway. When we found it I was delighted but also sad because I was sure it would never light up again. However I was very wrong. It sparked right up on the first try and I've continued to use it ever since.
