When it comes to cigar smoking, every aficionado needs their own cigar cutter, allowing for a quick and accurate cut for the perfect draw. There are three main types of cigar cutter: straight or guillotine cutters, punch cutters and V-cutters. We stock a selection of each of these, allowing you to choose a cutter that suits your needs and design preferences!
Straight cutters are the most common type and are typically used on cigars that have a smaller ring gauge. A popular kind of straight cutter is the double-bladed guillotine, which offers a cleaner cut on the cigar. These types of cutters are easily transportable.
Punch cutters are another option, which cuts a hole in the cigar cap rather than slicing the cap off. Some smokers prefer this cut style, as it exposes less of the cigar’s filler and binder, which reduces the risk of tobacco ending up in your mouth. The most common type of punch cutter is the bullet punch cutter.
Lastly, there is the V-cut, which looks quite similar to guillotine cutters. Unlike a guillotine cutter, though, the V-cut will only cut a wedge out of the cigar cap, rather than completely remove it. Some V-cutters will take out more of the filler tobacco than straight cutters do, which smokers who enjoy a thicker gauge cigar often prefer.
