    Don't have pics handy but I'm loving my new Xikar Exodus! That thing is sweet. I've got a nice cutter but I'm not sure of the brand. It was gifted to me from my mother-in-law from a local shop near where they live. It's SOLID, somewhat heavy in hand, and cost $30ish dollars.

    So, yeah.

    I've been looking at the Xi2 cutters, how do you like them? Any reason NOT to save a few bucks over the Xi1 or Xi3? I also think about getting that multi-tool every time it pops on the Monster!

    nice cutter I like the small ring gauge it keeps that new guy from chopping a inch off of a good cigar

    Now thats what I call attention to detail!


    My favorite tool would be my Xikar MTSC Scissors. Great everytime.

    The only complaints I've heard of regarding Xikar cutters have to do with the Xi2 models. For $5 more I would get the Palio over the Xi2, or if you had the coin, one of the less fancy Xi3 models which can cut up to 58rg (54 for Xi1 & 2 & Palio).

    It's not the money itself that's an issue, it's the principal of paying extra of what seems like the exact same cutter, just a different material handle. Perhaps that's not the only difference, I take it?

    The complaints I've heard of are that the rivits pop out occasionally if the cutter gets dropped on the ground.

    The other difference (I own the Xi1 & a Palio) is that they work a bit differently. Palio is a typical guillotine cutter whereas the Xikar is a teardrop cutter. They use different pressure points on your hand when cutting. The Xikar is more comfortable for me so I use it almost exclusivly.

    No problems with my X2. All I need is that and a torch lighter. I used to rock Bics and always said...what do I need a torch for....Bic works fine. Well that was until I tried a triple flame torch. Let's just say I haven't picked up a Bic since. In fact I will go out of my way to go get my torch instead of using anything else. It is such a cleaner light.

    ohhh....and a deep well ashtray. Can't go without that.

    Straighten out a portion of one of these (large size) to use as a draw tool. My overall favorite!

    I used to use one of those, but after using Boom's draw tool I never went back. Never regretted that purchase...
