I tell you, HK public relations in Virginia which manages the Hk Webshop is running a tight ship over there. They emailed me this morning letting me know the Zippos were listed on the site. That is a BIG plus in my book.

It always looks good when you whip it out and light it then toss it into the gasoline puddled on the road for a massive explosion!! Well at least for a non smoker that is!! Just like teh movies,just now in style.

They ship from the USA. When you get to the Webshop's homepage, click the left or "English" for North America. Everything listed forsale there ships from the US.

Wolfdaddy: I recommend replacing the internals of the lighter with a torch instead of using the regular flame for cigar smoking. The lighter fluid inhibits a after taste that will kill the enjoyment of your cigar. They make torch inserts for Zippos and the butane gas will not leave any residue for you to taste in your cigar.

I already plan on doing that. I have a Z-plus insert I got a couple years ago that has yet to fail me. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the tip on the Z-plus. My son is a cigar smoker and while he would like the HK lighter he needs the torch. Now he will have both. I don't think he will replace the Xicar with the HK but he can at least use the HK if he chooses.
A bit off the topic, but we found a great use for those LFD Mysterio cigar boxes when you want to "light one off."

Big Bore never fails to amaze me. If your son is an avid smoker, try looking into triple torch flame lighters. These have 3 burners over one and will light a cigar quick. Just be careful, those are powerful enough to melt pennies and singe eyebrows! :D

Thanks for the tip. Right now he is using a Xikar Element which is a dual flame torch and he likes it very much. I am quite sure he will not want to switch it out for even the HK lighter but if and when he feels he needs something with a bit more heat I will keep it in mind about the tripple flame. He usually smokes a Robusto size and it does seem to me the Xikar he has lights them right up but I will pass on the tip about the tripple flame. Any particular brand you recommend?

I just got my two lighters, 4 stickers, and hat today and ahhhhh. Very nice.
Now my son will have his lighter and I am expecting the butane insert to come today also. He is going to love it and mine, well, its just for looks but NO HK connoisseur can be without a HK lighter.

Yup, the small white truck dropped of the Z-Plus inserts today in the mail box as I expected. Very nice and THANK YOU for the tip!
