Cigar cutters are often classified based on their blade style or design. The blade style refers to the type of incision they make across the cigar cap. The most common ones are guillotine cutters, V-cutters, and punch cutters. Guillotine or straight cutters are the most common type of cigar cutters. They feature a single or dual extremely sharp blade(s). The single-blade type, like our Cigar Country Single Blade Cutter, has a single blade that cuts through the cigar cap from a single direction. In contrast, the double-blade guillotine cutters have two blades that cut through the cigar cap from two opposite directions simultaneously and give a more precise cut than the single-blade. An example of this is the Palio Cigar Country Cutter.
The punch cutters like the Xikar make a hole in the head of the cigar. They have a cylindrical blade type and are less popular than guillotine cutters. They result in a highly concentrated smoke that is intense. An example of this is the Xikar 11mm Twist Punch Cigar Cutter. The V-cutters are the least common of the cigar cutters. They make a V-cut on the head of the cigar. Their blades are arranged in an inverted or V shape. V-cutters also result in a highly concentrated draw. Our Cigar Country Single Blade V Cigar Cutter is an example. Cigar scissors are also a class of cigar cutters with dual blades that meet at a central joint like the conventional scissors. They make an ultra-precise cut but require practice for use. The tear-drop-shaped XIKAR Xi1 Cigar Cutter is a popular type.
