Not much to choose from here seeing as my collection of cigar cutters amounts to a grand total of four, which is actually more then I thought I'd have at this stage. People tend to throw them at me, amongst other things, but how many cutters is too many cutters? How much can I write about them? It cuts good...It cuts bad...
First cutter came from Dan. Dan visited last year and brought with him a 5 pack of Cohiba, a box of long matches and my first cutters. Nice man Dan. More on those Cohibas (and Dan) later as they (and Dan) deserve a posting all to themselves. This is the cutter Dan brought from Spain. Did the job without too much damage but not as sharp as I expected. Now retired but will always remain close to my heart. Marks of 5 out of 10.
Next cutters to come along came all the way from Luxembourg, in that Xmas care package from BFF Johnny D. I'll stop calling him BFF Johnny D soon, might call him BFFJD for short, anyway, along with a bundle of sticks, was a classy looking cutters in a fake leather case. This looks the business but made a mess of the two cigars I used it on. It has not been used since. It sort of pinched them before eventually cutting through. Not good, 3 out of 10.
Number 3 came with the humidor from C.Gars Ltd. This cutters has a single blade and felt razor sharp. It cut through my cigars with ease and is now my cutter of choice. Number 4 was thrown in when the wife bought 6 cigars from the C.Gars Ltd shop in West Hampstead. Same as number 3 but smaller. Also razor sharp and cuts perfectly. Both below and both score 8 out of 10.
I suppose by this time next year, I'll probably have more cigar cutters in my possession then cigars in my humidor...I'll let you know by this time next year.
