Do you need a cutter for your Cigar?

Short answer- YES most likely!

While some cigars don't need to be cut, most of our range do.

Machine made cigars and cigarillos are pre-cut, but almost every other cigar is hand rolled and will need to be cut before you can smoke them.

How much to cut off:

The key is to start small, and cut again if required, if you cut too much, then the wrapper will flake in your mouth.

What cutter is best:

The general rule of thumb is to more you spend, the better quality obviously, but I'f your only planning on trying one cigar, or giving one as a gift, then start with a cheap basic cutter, as your love of cigars grows, then you can spend more on a quality lighter.

Single Blade, Double Blade or V-cut - thats a matter of preference. I personally like to mix it up.
