Xikar Xi3 Cutter – Apple Coral
XIKAR’s iconic teardrop shape cutter has been paired with strikingly beautiful coral handles found on the ocean floor. A Xikar Xi3 Cutter is the ultimate accessory for the distinguished cigar smoker who wants a quality cut and a strikingly beautiful look. The natural coral handles are crafted by hand and assembled by Scrimshaw Artist, Rick Hutchings. No two are alike.
Apple Coral is stabilized luscious red sponge coral, typically imported from Taiwan and Indonesia. It is naturally a dark brick red, but red dye is sometimes added to stabilize the resin. This type of coral is mainly found in the Pacific or Indian Oceans.
The coral pieces used to make these cutters are found on the ocean floor, broken off from the surf and storm surge. They are collected using sound practices and techniques, and are no longer part of a living coral reef.
