I saw in this thread:
someone was having a problem with the cutter included in the Cohiba sampler. Oddly enough, I've been thinking of this lately. We had a dozen or so of those samplers at the shop I work at, and nearly all of the cutters included had problems of some sort. I think only maybe three are still working fine as best we know, the others were brought back to us within a week or two. We replaced them off the shelf and replacements were shipped to us no problem (love the warranty service for that!), but I was wondering if maybe there was a batch produced for the gift packs that may have had an issue?
In 4 years of smoking, I've never seen any Xikar cutters have a single problem (aside from normal dull blades after years of use) until those Cohiba gift pack ones, and I use my own (4 years old) as a selling point every time someone is interested.
Just curious because the anomaly of those gift packs vs. years of perfection had my boss wondering too.
