FlintFire I Windowpane

Submitted by Rob on January 17, 2010 – 3:00 am2 Comments

If a pretentiously elegant S.T. Dupont lighter is outside of your budget but still on your wish list you may want to look at the FlintFire I Windowpane by XIKAR.  Taking the styling ques directly from the S.T. Dupont Vertical Lignes this is one piece that you won’t be afraid to show off in public.

The FlintFire I Windowpane is the “slim” design that measures 5/16 of an inch thick, 2 3/4 inches in length and 1 3/8  wide. Despite the slender size the solid high-gloss body has a great weight and texture in your hand. The lines are just large enough to be felt by your fingers and the “Flint Strike Wheel” texture/lines are slightly enlarged for effortless lighting.

A small plate hides the FlintFire I Windowpane fill nozzle and the flame adjuster is, again, a replica of the S.T. Dupont. However this “Easy Adjustment Wheel” is rather miniature and may not be ideal for anyone with larger hands. It is safe to say that you will need finger nails or a small sharp object to lift it up. I also want to mention that while I am comparing the FlintFire I Windowpane to a S.T. Dupont the lid will not make any sort of “ping“.

FlintFire I Windowpane is a great lighter that one can use for the occasional social gathering. The size of the lighter limits the amount of fuel and therefore makes it a little too much work as a heavy use cigar lighter. The other downfall is that the FlintFire only has a single flame making it great for a quick touch-up but time consuming for lighting a larger cigar.

Remember that the size is limiting the FlintFire I Windowpane in features and you will be required to carry a cutter or punch.

MSRP for the FlintFire I Windowpane is a reasonable $79.99 and comes with the XIKAR Life Time Warranty.
