FrontRunners: A Cut Above

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2006

    Most cigar connoisseurs use a guillotine cutter for their smokes, but some prefer a V-cutter (which leaves a slash across the cigar’s tip) or a punch cutter (which produces a shallow, concentric cut). For those who host cigar- smoking guests with various preferences, Altadis USA (www.altadisusa.com) offers the Cigar Savor tabletop cigar cutter, a single unit that combines all three options. The wood-handled lever that operates the guillotine and V- cutter makes it easy to cut even 60-ring-size behemoths, and a drawer in the side catches clippings. The cutter is priced at $300.
