    Website Description: This cutter is impressive, all around. Easy to look at and a joy to use, the Colibri Grip features a solid case, ergonomic design, and two razor sharp stainless steel blades. Quickly cut any cigar with this well-made cutter thatís destined to become one of your favorite cigar toys.

    This cutter is not impressive. At all. I purchased this thinking it was an upgrade from the generic guillotine I had. The AB logo was a bonus, as I am not a fanboy, nor do I dislike Alec Bradley. Iíve had some good and some bad Bradley cigars. The overall color and logo scheme is nice though. Clean and simple. However, I draw the line where the product description calls this cutter ďa joy to use.Ē

    The cutter is easy enough to hold, but the blades are far from razor sharp. This cutter more pinches at the cap than clips it. I would say nearly 50% of the cigars I have cut with it have suffered from its butter knife like guillotine blades.

    Perhaps I got a bad one, as I have heard some good things about Colibri. My thoughts are that maybe they send seconds to CBid and other companies, so that the after-market logos can be added as a novelty. While some accoutrement, like lighters, can still be functional despite a low price, I found out that cutters are not something you should skimp on. If you are a fan of one of the brands which are put on this cutter and you see it as more of a display piece, by all means, pick one up. However, if you are looking for a cutter that provides a neat, sharp clip, stay away.

    Nope. I got a Diesel logo one and the blades on my generic double guillotine make the Colibri look like a plastic picnic knife DO NOT waste your money, not even worth the 7 I paid

    I have one.

    Not great but for the money, it's a great cutter to throw in the glove box or tackle box!

    I totally agree with this review. I found that any of the branded Colibri Grip Cutters i have used are junk. (I have not tried any of their higher end cutters) They feel and look nice but when it comes time to use them i reach for my cheap plastic guillotine cutter that i got from my local B&M. The Blades on the Colibri Cutter are just way too thick and dull to actually do any good.

    Ditto. Great golf bag cutter, but get a nice Xikar you won't regret it.

    I have 3 of these, I think 2 were freebies and 1 was 5 or 7 bucks on the devil site. They are worth free, but not a dollar more IMHO.

    Thanks for the review... was looking at one of those and I think I'm better off with a Xikar that comes with a lifetime warranty....

    Absolutely, Palio makes a fine cutter also.

    Yes. Yes you are. I use Xikar nearly exclusively. I only use something else when I punch. Both my guillotine and v-cut is Xikar. But, that's because I'm cheap and haven't ponied up the dough for a Palio...yet.

    Oh I also forgot the "Cuban Crafter Perfect Cutter" it's great cheap and lifetime guarantee. The black resin one is like 7 bucks.
