Abit off topic, but thanks to you guys, I went to the devil site and got involved in numerous auctions this week. Of course, I needed to "spread out the shipping costs" so that meant several auctions.

You guys warned me !

Hmmm . . . Ive got lots of razor sharp knives. I never considered using them to notch that kinda stick. Might have to experiment once on a cheap stoggie.

Make sure they are laser sharp. Anything less that "drags" on the cap will tear it.
I've ruined my share.

I might not be Carnac. But I see a trip to the e.r. in your future.

Xikar VX V Cutter : Your experiences ?

The Dickman cut is definitely my new preferred cut for any torpedo and Belicoso. I actually used my perfect cutter the other day because my v cutter was having trouble with a LADC cap. I even broke my punch out a few weeks back too. But I agree, the v is the way to go for standard caps. I may have to bite the bullet and get a Xikar VX that you and Huda speak of.

I'll be right back, I got cigar smoke in my eyes!

Hmmmmm . . . lets see. I can save 30 bucks on a V cutter, and then spend a lot more at the clinic getting stitches.

You, my friend, have just provided me with the perfect 'justification' for buying a new Xikar VX.

Thank you.

(Actually, Ive been using knives as a hunter, fisherman, outdoorsman, for search&rescue, etc for some time & am very careful with them. But that doesnt help with this purchase justification, so I choose to ignore all that.)

The irony of seeing this thread.....
I just recently got my second one in the mail which I plan on keeping in my vacation spot.

Probably the best all around cutter. Once you get the hang of it you can cut any cigar. Love making the X cut with it as it provides a great draw and doesn't damage the cap.

You're talkin to a guy that about bled out from a self inflicted Modus wound.

Oh man, this thread cracks me up. I too am going to go ahead and get an XV - really prefer that cut, especially on a box press stogie. To be clear, my knife cuts aren't that fancy cats eye - just a straight V with a very sharp knife so nothing tears.

Oh and if you do tear it and cut your finger, the blood can be used to glue the wrapper back down.
