Cigars need a good cut for you to get the best draw. You are best served by getting yourself a solid cutter that will give your cigars a clean, consistent cut. This will let you enjoy the cigar the way it should be.
A bad cut will ruin a cigar, so you will want to be consistent with them. Don’t try to be like those movie tough guys that bite off the cap. For one thing, the blades of a cutter are sharper than your teeth, so you’ll get a cleaner cut by using it and not your mouth. For another thing, you won’t be able to see what you’re doing, so you might bite too far and risk unraveling your cigar and ruining it. There’s not a whole lot to the cap, so it would be very easy to overdo it when you can’t see. Your best option for a smooth, clean cut is with a cutter so it is best to grab one so you don’t ruin your cigar.
So now that you know the need for a good cutter, let’s look at looks. This will be something that you use every time you want to enjoy a fresh cigar, so you will want to have a cutter that is comfortable in your hand and looks nice when you pull it out. For the solitary cigar user, it might not be as important but if you like to enjoy your cigars amongst friends why not show off a little? The Xikar XO Black Honeycomb cutter has a pleasant design that lets you show off your creativity. Meanwhile, you can get flashy with Rattray’s Harry Satin Gold cutter.
