If you're trying to ween yourself off nicotine, or simply enjoy smoking but don't enjoy the harmful (and potentially deadly) side effects, check out the Luci Cigarette ($150). This ingenious cigarette-shaped device uses three pieces — a circular, rechargeable lithium ion battery, an atomization chamber, and a flavor cartridge — to deliver a cigarette-like smoking experience without the smoke, sensing when you inhale, lighting the tip-mounted LED and vaporizing the flavoring solution (available with or without nicotine) to deliver a puff of flavor that's free from harmful toxins.
You may not drive one, but you can light one. Dedicated smokers can really do no better the Tonino Lamborghini Cigar Lighters & Cutter ($150-$175). They're as precision engineered as the cars, and equally as sexy. Our favorite, the Forza lighter (left), has a push button ignition styled after the car's ignition button. The spring-loaded, double blade cigar cutter cuts cigars up to 58-ring gauge with super sharp surgical steel blades.
Save your stogies in this super classy Grants of Dalvey Solo Cigar Ashtray ($90). Made in Scotland, this polished stainless steel ashtray is as functional as it is beautiful, holding a single cigar horizontally for a long and even burn.
After 75 years, the classic Zippo is finally getting an upgrade. The Zippo Blu Lighter ($33-$59) is a blue flame butane torch lighter that sports a great new profile but retains the trademark flint-wheel. Targeted at cigar smokers, the Blu lighter doesn't emit the odor or aftertaste caused by lighter fluid. A whole new family is available — from the basic brushed chrome to 18-karat gold plated. They're made in the USA and have a lifetime guarantee. As expected, our test unit performed flawlessly and now goes everywhere we do.
Tote your stoges like a mob errand boy with one of these Zero Halliburton Cigar Cases ($300-$500). Available in two sizes and three colors, the cases feature a stacking tray system that holds 30 large cigars and feature a Digital hygrometer and Paradigm Humidification System with anti-fungal sponge. The classic anodized aluminum exterior and rotary combination lock finish things off.
If you're going to smoke, at least do it in style. Designed by Achille Castiglioni, the Alessi Spirale Ashtray ($100) is a classy alternative to your normal butt repository, made from polished steel, and featuring a "spirale" for holding your burning death sticks, or for holding other "burning" items safely above the ashes for later use.
Stoners have long been known for their ingenuity. So, when one especially clever dude got sick of always looking for his lighter, he invented the Solopipe ($33). The tobacco smoking device combines a butane lighter with a high-end stainless steel pipe. Already showing up in the hands of green celebs, the Solopipe features a sliding bowl cover, refillable gas valve, and adjustable flame control.
Since the rise of Castro, Americans have been denied the pleasure of cuban cigars — unless they came into the country beforehand. This box of Hoyo de Monterrey Panetelas ($3125) includes 50 fine cigars dating back to the 1940's that are five inches in length, feature a 35 diameter, and are almost 100% sure to be better than the last Dominican you smoked.
There's nothing like lighting up a fine cigar after a long, successful work week — but there's also nothing quite as uncool as having little bits of cigar in your pockets. Inspired by a case obtained from a collector who emigrated from Cuba, the Morgan Grays Cigar Case ($95) is a classic way to carry up to two stogies. Each case is handmade from fine leather, making sure you're just as good as that Macanudo you're about to light.
If you want to get the most out of your "herbs," look no further than the Volcano Vaporizer ($540) by Storz & Bickel. Referred to as the "BMW of bongs," the Germany-made device uses hot air to vaporize the greens, making the stuff you inhale up to four times more potent than normal smoking. The Volcano also helps keep harmful substances out of your body and the ganja odor out of your apartment.
It's pretty obvious that cigars aren't the healthiest means of celebration, but there is a feeling of accomplishment that comes with the "victory cigar" that can't be duplicated. Keep yourself ready for victory at any time with the Visol Cigar Set ($80). The three-piece set comes with a triple flame torch lighter, a cigar cutter with a stone rest, and a solid metal cigar ashtray, all in a black and satin silver finish. [Thanks, Tyler]
They apparently make covers for everything... cell phones, iPods, laptops, matchbooks. The Jack Spade Leather Matchbook Cover ($10) protects a book of matches and lets you keep that heavy Zippo at home. The cover comes with a Japanese matchbook and features the word "FIRE" foil stamped on the front.
