xikar's free sheath lies!!! UPDATE!!!!!

Anyone else been screwed by Xikar's "free sheath" promo? It's on there home page, when you register a newly purchased Xikar product you get a free sheath in 3-5 weeks. It's been 3 months...no sheath and no returns to my emails. I guess it's not a big deal now; my lighter is rather scratched up at this point. Just wondering if anyelse had the same or better results???

    I can understand the sheath maybe getting lost, but I'm surprised they don't respond to your emails. I've had good luck myself, received a sheath for a cutter and one for a lighter, both promptly.

    I got the sheath for my cutter and it came in like 3 weeks. I've never had any problems with Xikar at all.

    Same as Puro, with both cutters I bought and later lost.

    I got both of mine with no problem. The only issue I have is that I do not us them much and it is hard to ge the lighter out.

    Dunno if it's a bogus promo. Some people get it with no problem. I still haven't received it yet and it's been about a month. No big deal, since it's free anyways and I know Canada Post is crap compared to USPS.

    Never had a problem with XiKar. Also, have had great communication with them on Twitter, so I don't know. Try contacting someone personally, or calling them.
  • Got mine for my lighter.

    Got mine 4 different times for 2 cutters & 2 different lighters no problem. Also, my emails have always been promptly answered. They have a toll free customer service line answered during normal business hours by a real person. Try calling and ask.

    Bought a cutter about a year ago and my sheath came in about 3 weeks.
  • It's been the same for me. I've been waiting a lot longer than 3 months too. I got my lighter at the beginning of last summer around may and have given up waiting with no email responses too.

    Hmmm I almost forgot... I got one for my cutter but never got the one for my lighter.

    Same deal as most of you. I got my lighter and cutter as gifts. I registered and in about 3 weeks got the lighter sheath and about a week later, one came for the cutter.

    +! Mine came for my lighter within a couple of weeks. The sheeth for the cutter took about a week longer. You did register the items no?
    I would e-mail them again as they came through for me no problem.

    ////sounds like many want to sample the forbidden fruit from the ISOM, so perhaps start a thread about lifting the trade embargo

    XIKAR does not screw anybody.  It's called an apology.  We were waiting months for our shipments from overseas.  We had over 3,500 XIKAR customers waiting for sheaths.  Chinese New Year and shipping delays caused us lots of sleepless nights.  We apologize for the delay...and we mean it!  If there is anything I can do to make up for the delay please let me know.  Bob Moreno, Dir Marketing   [email protected]
