The original Xikar Resource has been one of our best-selling pipe lighters, ever. We're really pleased to see the new Resource II with some updated features, making this version even more functional than before, with a new streamlined appearance. It has an easy operating piezo electric ignition system which doesn't require a flint. The shape feels very secure and comfortable in the hand, and it has a swing out tamper and scraper, so you don't have to carry a pipe tool with you. The Resource II also has a fuel cell window and a larger adjustment wheel than the previous version.
