Colibri’s Enterprise III Lighter

Colibri’s Enterprise III lighter offers the cigar enthusiast a quick and easy way to take initiative and light up: a single-action ignition.

The single-action ignition is actually a contoured button located on the side of the lighter’s body. When this button is pressed, the cap atop the Enterprise III flips back to expose three jet flames while simultaneously triggering the mechanism inside the body that lights the wind-resistant flames. The action can be set in motion with a steady push of the thumb.

Overall, the Enterprise III feels well-constructed and not at all tinny. And with the lighter’s contoured lines and striking finishes, it’s likely a fellow brother of the leaf will feel compelled to try it out on his own cigar.

The Enterprise sells for $100 and comes in a combination of five finishes: matte black and gunmetal polished chrome (pictured), matte black and polished chrome, satin chrome and polished chrome, satin gunmetal and polished chrome, black lacquer and brushed rose-gold finish.

"I've owned a triple flame Colibri for 6 years now and never had an issue. Wel, At first I thought I did but then realized that I wasn't letting the air out before refilling. Onve I learned how to discharge the lighter completely before refilling, it's been a breeze to use and own. " —July 12, 2012 11:39 AM
