    Hello everybody, Pardon me if this has been covered before, I DID try a limited search ... :ask: How far up the stick do folks usually cut the ends of their cigars. Apparently I have been cutting far too agressively. Do you chop the end off totally or just clip a portion of it. Any advice or...

    I thought I would start this thread after a new experience the other day. I had recently bought a V-cutter because I was curious about how it would affect the draw and possibly even a slight big of the flavor and how it smoked. I stuck the cigar in there and cut it wit the V-shaped blade...

    Folks, Today, I experienced the 3rd tin of Dunhill that arrived with a loose tin lid. The tin was so loose that it fell off by itself when held upside-down. I have hundreds of tins in my collection but Orlik's Dunhill is the only brand that I have ever experienced loose/unsealed tins from...

    I see lots of good deals on Churchill size cigars all the time, but it's a little more cigar than I prefer in one sitting. Instead of smoking, letting it go out, and trying to relight it another time, is there any reason why a cigar can't simply be cut in half? It's not like there's a filter...

    I am smoking unlimited diesels. Does cutting the cigar completely versus just a bit at the part you put in your mouth increase flavor etc. or just the draw? Hope this makes sense???

    What's your preferred method of cutting a cigar (standard cutter, hole-punch type, v-shaped cutter, biting, etc.)? I prefer your standard cutter. Does this only effect the draw or does the way you cut your cigar have other effects?

    Sometimes when I go out for a short trip I'll cut a cigar and throw it in a tube so I don't have to carry a cutter with me. Long story short, a lack of opertunity combined with a summer cold has me with a cigar I cut a week ago. It is still in good shape and back in the humidor. I'm wondering...

    I am looking at getting some Peterson Perfect Plug and am thinking about using a vegetable mandolin or even a vegetable peeler to cut the plug. The Mandolin especially has insanely sharp blades and would allow nice even cuts. One other thought I had was a draw knife, used in wood working with...

    Okay, let's say you are having a fine smoke. Suddenly you are interrupted and need to stop and the smoke is only half smoked. Do you carefully stuff it out, or use your cutter to cut off the ember?

    So sometimes when its late, or bad weather, I like to bring some tinfoil with me, so that when I have to end my cigar prematurely (Anything but the nub), I can wrap up my cigar, extinguish the amber, and bring my cigar home, to be lit another day. I usually also cut off slightly below the burn...

    So I sat down to smoke a sancho panza dm and accidentally cut the tip on an angle. I was pissed at first for messing up the cap, but now that I'm smoking it, I'm realizing that the stick tastes better than normal. There seems to be more flavor. Anyone else experience this?
