The main aim is to clear a passage in the end cap of the cigar to allow it to draw without damaging the carefully rolled filler or the outer leaf. Using a cheap blunt cutter can damage the wrapper and crush the inner binder affecting the draw and resulting in loose cuts of tobacco in the mouth.
Xikar’s classic double guillotine cutter now has a more refined look and feel. The X8 maintains the same size, quality and performance that cigar smokers expect from Xikar, but delivers it in a new metal body. The X8 features stainless steel blades for a smooth and clean cut every time. It’s the perfect combination of style and performance.
The X8 can handle up to 70 ring gauge cigars, making it ideal for larger ring gauges. The contoured cutter body doubles up as a cigar rest.
