Cigar cutter?

Post by JohnnyMcPiperson » Tue Mar 10, 2015 3:03 pm

Based on a comment in the "most recent cigar" thread I was curious:

What type of cutter do you prefer and why?

My favorite is actually a table-top style like this, mostly because it's hard to screw it up:

But from your list, I like the double blade cutters. I don't think it's necessarily a superior design, but for some reason, the ones I've used seem to be made to a higher standard than the single blade ones.

I use a punch like Pepik. Or the pointy pick thing on a Czech tool. It helps to stick the butt in your mouth for a minute to moisten it.

I have a couple of two blade cutters, but often just use my pocket knife to cut a big x in the end of the cigar.

Torpedos & Belicoso = Palio

Everything else = Xikar punch.

Palio.
Punch only works sometimes, and when it doesn't the draw is occluded, at which point I have to go to the Palio, which cutting a weakened head tends to damage it, and thus the smoke.

I have a Xikar double blade as well, it is the best, sometimes I also use an old straight razor.

Not so simple. An Avo punch or a double bladed doohicky or a single bladed cutter or my teeth.
