What Say Ye!? Cutter Question

I have been looking around for a cutter for some time and will most likely end up with a few(dang hobby!)

I found a lot of cutters in this style but have never read or heard anything about them before, I like the concept of having a straight and v cut on the same tool and the prices are generally pretty inexpensive. Does anyone have some inside knowledge of if these are worth a hoot? Seems to be a big design in Europe.

Wish knew about those it looks cool. What brand? Where did you find that one? If you end up getting one let me know how out works out.
Personally I have a cc perfect cutter and a colibri v cutter and enjoy both. I like to use the v cutter on larger sticks and perfecto/torpedo's and the cc perfect on the rest.

Are looking for a cutter to carry around or for home use?

This would be more for a talking piece and around the house/cabin cutter. I have several friends who smoke cigars so I thought it would be cool to have and show off.

While I think for the money it would be cool to have just for that fact, I hate buying things that are not functional. So even if it is a cool talking point or show piece I dont want to have a cutter that just sits and doesnt get used because it cuts cigars poorly.

There are a lot of different designs, they range from $20 to $100 depending on the materials, they are advertises as Dontaus and Solingen and are made in Germany, most of them are vintage but I have seen some current production models as well.

There is a great cigar cutter that you can buy from famous smokes that is called a quad cutter. It is stainless steel with four cuts... Two straight cuts and 2 V cuts and each one is smaller.... the other is bigger and you can find deals for around $40. I have one of these and it's one of the best tabletop cutters for the money.

I have looked at that a few times, I like the design and the concept at a table top cutter. At some point I will purchase a table top cutter of some sort, we have a cabin that's a total "guy" place where all our friends go to a weekend get away once a month and a deer camp once a year. It would be a perfect addition to the cabin as we smoke many cigars while we are there.

Cutters in that style used to be more popular. They were always considered pretty upscale. I'm not sure why they seem to have fallen out of favor—most likely less expensive guillotines worked just as well. The only question you have is whether the one you purchase is still sharp enough to do its job. If it is, you have a great conversation piece and a classy cutter.

I do remember using that type of cutter once. It did OK with the V-Cut but I never tried the straight cut.

But man, that Quad Cuter would look great on an end table next to my Stinky Ashtray. But I would like to try it out in person, or get a first hand review first. Does if have some weight to it? The reviews on them seem great. I used to love using the Boston Cutter at a store I used to go to so a table cutter would be nice to have.

That's the one....and I bought the Boston Cutter in 1999....the Quad Cutter does just as good a job for $700 cheaper. The straight cut on the Quad Cutter is a scalloped type of cut.......it isn't a straight cut as much as it scoops as it cuts.

Well, I can tell you first hand that I bought one based on @Cigary 's recommendation and love it. I use it regularly, but in particular for larger rg box pressed cigars (eg San Lotano Maduro) for that nice "scoop" V-cut.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em
