The guillotine is simple and usually inexpensive, but requires a certain amount of manual dexterity to use properly. You have to be able to cut the cigar with one quick, accurate stroke to avoid messing up your cigar. The double-blade guillotine allows you to cut most any cigar shape, but you do have to be careful not to cut below the cap because this can cause the wrapper to unravel.

 



The punch cutter doesn’t require much skill, but will not work on Figurado shapes and can cut your finger off if it’s loose in your pocket without the top.

The wedge cutter will give you more surface area and is good for small ring gauge cigars, but the cheaper models can damage your smokes.

Some cigar lovers prefer to cut their smokes with scissors. Like a double blade cutter, cigar scissors snip off just the cap of the cigar. But don’t think any old scissors you have lying around the house will do the job. You need special cigar cutting scissors made from surgical quality stainless steel.

 



Which cutter you buy, and how much you spend on it, is a matter of personal preference, so consider which cigars you smoke most frequently and choose the perfect tool.

With Father’s Day right around the corner, a cigar cutter (or scissors) is the ideal gift for dad, so now’s the time to start hinting to your offspring that you don’t really need another tie!

If you still can’t decide which cutter is perfect for you, head over to our Puff.com forums and get some opinions from our very knowledgeable band of cigar aficionados.  You can find reviews and additional information about the various types of cigar cutters in the Cigar Accessory Discussion Forum.
