Overview of Features
Given its appearance, we must start with how incredibly attractive this cigar cutter from Prestige Import Group is.
The dark walnut wood finish plays a huge role, but we must not overlook the curved lines and shaping of the base, the cutter housing, and the handle. These all add to its ability to sit on a desktop and look every bit as, if not more, attractive than any other items that it shares the desk with.
Using this cigar cutter is very simple, and a great feature that adds to that is the slot at the back on which you sit your cigar when cutting. This keeps it in place and ensures that the cut is exactly where you want it to be.
As for that cut, it is achieved simply by pushing down on the wooden blade handle, once you have moved the cigar the correct distance through the blade hole.
Another useful, and also attractive feature is the catch tray at the front of the cutter. This will catch the end that has been cut off plus any tobacco that has fallen out of the cigar when cut. This tray has a chrome-plated finish which adds yet more to its decorativeness.
How to Use It
Using this cigar cutter is very simple, so much so that if you have never used a cigar cutter before, you will be able to do so first time with this one, without any problems.
Simply lift the blade so that the hole is fully open, place the end of the cigar you wish to cut through the hole, and then push down quickly on the blade’s handle. This will cut the end of the cigar off, and it will fall into the catch tray.
Rather than having to sharpen the blade, replacement blades can be purchased from Prestige Import Group, and fitting them is very easy to do.
