Following my earlier post on Solingen cutters. I was "inspired" to look for a new cutter. Over the years I have used a number of cutters - in particular Xikar cutters. Part of the attraction is the lifetime warranty. Essentially they replace the part - no questions asked. In the past - you could return the item to the original retailer and it would be replaced (at least where I live). Now that appears to have changed since Xikar was purchased last year by Quality Imports. So they have to be shipped back to QI in the US. Lengthy process (over a month turn around) and additional costs associated. But I digress. Back to the issue: a number of different cutters were used/purchased and all have had to be replaced. Blades have gone dull/blunt. These are the ones I have used so far. Xi2 Ultra Slim M8 Twist punch Now I would not call myself a prolific smoker 3-4/week on average. Typical threshold has been 12-18 months before the blades start showing signs of challenge. There does not appear to be an adequate method to sharpen the blades. Ironically a bevelled shell casing lasts longer. However for the larger vitolas, I would prefer a cutter. Wondering if any other solutions could be suggested. Or just purchase cheaper/disposable and consider it the price of doing business. I understand that this all falls into the category of First World Problems (FWP)....
smfdff posted a topic in Humidor TutorialHello to FOH's; I have spent the last few hours jumping from site to site trying to figure out who has the best humidor for me. I recently joined FOH and rather than dip a toe in to test the water and try my new hobby out, I seem to have dove right in by purchasing 2 box's of cigars from 24:24 and the basic's; torch and cutter. So now that I have these 2 box's heading my way, and on the words of El Presidente, these 2 box's need to sit for about a year.So I am hoping some one here has a good web dealer for supplies. I started with the recommended tupper-dor method by get the small seal-able plastic container and the boveda but I don't think I can get 50 sticks in to the container. Thanks for the help!
