XIKAR Cigar Accessories are manufactured to the most strict standards of quality, ensuring perfectly cut and lit cigars every time.
The world renown XIKAR® Xi cutter gives cigar enthusiasts the finest cigar cut with power, efficiency and ease of use. The cutter operates by a double-guillotine scissors action, using a bottom hinge point with an internal spring to release the cutter to the open position. A locking device retains the blades in the closed position after each cut. This feature adds to the safety and portability of the cutter.
XIKAR Lighters are available in a variety of flames types and styles for the most demanding aficionado.
All XIKAR lighters proudly meet the performance criteria of ISO 9994 & F 400 Standards and are designed using XIKAR's four fundamentals.
Lighters:IGNITING THE LIGHTER
Xi Cutters:Hold the cutter on one side in the first crook of knuckles, and on the other side along the length of your thumb. Use a powerful snap squeeze to cut your cigar for best effect. Note the two sides operate independently of one another, so one will always close against the cigar first. Rest assured that both blades meet in the middle and that each cuts the same amount of cigar.
Knives:XIKAR utilizes the "liner lock" on Xi knives for easy opening and closing. To release the lock and close the knife, simply turn the belly of the knife up so that you can see the blade slot. Then, using your thumb, push the angled liner that is pinned against the butt of the blade sideways toward the knife handle and away from the blade base. Once the liner is in a straight position against the body, close the blade slightly and the lock is released. You can now close the knife completely.
XIKAR hygrometers are manufactured following strict standards for years of trouble free operation. However, if you find that the screen does not turn on, remove the battery by opening the cover located on the back of the unit. Make sure the battery is installed properly and makes contact with the silver metal contact. If the unit will not turn on, replace the battery.
XIKAR hygrometers have used various battery sizes over the years. To ensure you purchase the right battery for your hygrometer, check your specific unit. For equivalent batteries sizes, see below. Follow each link for a complete list of compatible batteries.

CuttersWe recommend that you periodically clean and lubricate the locking / opening mechanism on XI cutters and knives. Simply place a couple of drops of a quality graphite lubricant (such as TUF GLIDE or LOCK EASE) in the mechanism, and operate the unit for deep penetration. Wipe away excess lubricant when finished. The locking mechanism of XI cutters can be accessed through the hole that appears above the release button when the cutter is open.
Blades may be cleaned of debris using rubbing alcohol. We also recommend using a soft chamois cloth to polish the blade steel.
