Introduction to Cigar Cutters



"Exactly what you have to do to your sticks before you smoke varies depending on personal preference and the types of cigars you prefer. If you have uncut, unaltered cigars, you’ve got to cut one end and poke the other so you can smoke it. Before you cut, though, let’s make sure that you know everything there is to know about that indispensable tool – the cigar cutter."

Great post, maybe you should add some Cutters look like a lot of other Cutters (clone cutters), but when you use two look alikes. Some time the more expensive one price is justified by performance.

I just did a wuicl cutter haunt I have SIX. LOL

So should you own multiple types? i only have a the guillotine cutter becasue by reading it it sounds like different types of cutters from different cigars

You can use a double guillotine on anything. It comes down to preference or necessity. I carry a punch on my keychain for times when I don't have my cutter. Alot of shooters will file an edge on a 9mm casing to make a punch.

I prefer a v-cut on torpedoes,a punch on small rgs, and a dbl guillotine for the rest.

I only use my guillotine on cigars I know to have tight draws (and torpedoes, obviously). I love the neat look of punch cuts, especially on gordos. It just looks right.

I've never used a V-cut.

A V-cut is really, really cool ... I don't own one (my cutter was given to me by my brother) ... but, when I worked at the B&M that is all I used (except on LFD DL chisel and torpedos).

If your task is too hard, you're doing something wrong ....

I've become really fond of the punch. I have a punch dual torch combo lighter I got with a macanudo gift box. I usually punch two holes connected at the edge though, really like punching a clover in my larger gauges. But the envy I get from my forbidden X Prometheus guillotine is unrivaled.

30-06 for me. Seems to be a good size. File it down and don't cut anything but a cigar. The brass will loose it's edge real quick.

A punch for smaller sticks, and like @UBC03 showed me, you can always use it to cloverleaf.

The V is great for anything >46.
Sometimes I'll widen the opening with a second horizontal or make an X cut.

All my torps get a northern Dickman cut.
