Review of Cigar V Cutters

By

For this review of V cigar cutters, I selected three cutters priced under $10. A "V" cutter slices a V-shaped wedge into the cap of a cigar, cutting deeper into the filler than a standard straight cut. All three "V" cigar cutters were single bladed guillotine cutters.

The first 'V' cigar cutter tested was part of a multi-cutter. The 'V' cutter tool tore a huge jagged chunk out of the cap of the cigar. I am glad I was using scrap stogies for this test. The pictures tell the story better than I can.

The second 'V' cutter was a spring-loaded all metal cutter that also came in a nice leather sheath. This had a nice large indent for up to a 60 gauge ring size and a very sharp pointed ‘v’ shaped blade. Depressing two buttons mounted on the sides of the cutter popped the blade out and also locked closed when you made your cut. A very nice clean cut as well.

The third ‘V’ cutter had an inverter blade, was made of plastic, also with a large indent for a large cigar, and actually made a slightly nicer cut than the all steel cutter. This cutter did not have as nice of a look as the spring-loaded metal cutter, but it sells at a lower price.
