Now that it is fairly evident that you need an ashtray for your cigar smoking, you might be wondering if a regular old cigarette ashtray will suffice.  The answer to that is pretty much “no” due to the design.  If you think of cigarette ashtrays, you’ll be reminded of the fact that placing a cigar in one will have its orientation pointed in a downward angle.  That means that the ash is going to be hitting directly against the ashtray’s bottom.  Why is this not ideal?  Because you want to keep your ash as nice and solid as possible.  If it’s pointed downward, you are likely to smudge the ash against the ashtray, or it might just break off altogether.  So there you have it: trash that idea of using a cigarette ashtray for your cigar.  That’s IF you want to smoke the proper way, of course.

A cigar ashtray is designed to ensure that your ash collection is maximized.  It does this by having the ash rest just above the bottom of the ashtray so that it can basically sit in a suspended state.  Not only does this help the ash collect, but it also helps the cigar burn more evenly when you do not have it directly in your hand.  If it was sitting pegged against the ashtray, you’d have more of a mess on your hands, as you would need to fix the burn with your lighter.  Even worse, it might become beyond fixable and you’d have to dump it.

What’s another advantage of the design of a cigar ashtray?  It keeps the butt of the cigar level.  By doing this, all of your saliva that builds up will have a better chance to dry up so that you are not left with a completely soggy end that works against your quest for having the best smoking experience possible.
