What do you use on your Habanos? Guillotine, Punch, V Cutter or BITE

Double blade guillotine cutter all the time. My Cuban Crafters perfect cutter does the job very well.

I got one for Christmas from the wife. Very happy with it so far.

Start with a punch. If the draw is tight, off with her head!

I only smoke White Owls and they already have a hole in them....  Saves the decision on how to cut.   I can't handle too many options....

I've had mine for almost 3 years now and it still works great. It's a lot better than the 2 Palios that i have.

       * I have boo coo guillotine cutters: Zino, Cuban Crafters, Palio, Mean Sardine, ad infinitum. But I'm setting my sites on a more quality V-cutter soon. Right now I just have the freebies given to me by my local tobacconist. When I believe I have a quality, properly packed cigar I use the guillotine. If I have reason to believe that it's gonna be an underfilled airball - I use the V-cutter.

Ditto.    I've found that pinching the cap off works great on CCs asides from figurados and pyramids.  



Yup same here. Used to bite but switched to fingernails years ago. I even tried fingernails on a pyramid and am surprised how well it can work with a little patience, but I'll borrow a cutter for them when i can

I used to use a guillotine, but for the last couple of years, I use my pocket knife and gently cut the top cap off.  The blade I use is razor sharp cuts like a hot knife through butter.

I started with guillotine, then picked up a Colibri V cutter  that I LOVE.  Just added a Cuban Crafters guillotine and it's ok, better than the cheapo ones I've used, but now I need to try a punch to add to the variety.

Going forward I plan on using the V cutter on 95% of smokes

I use a 9mm punch on anything below 46RG, and a 13mm punch on anything bigger. Avoids any unravelling or unwanted bits in mouth. Only exception is torpedos / pyramids, which get a guillotine straight cut.

Same here. Makes a lot of sense.

Is that made in Germany?  I think I have one and they are awesome cheap cutters.

 

Otherwise, Colibri V-cut for me all day.

Yep. Made by Wolf in Sollingen, Germany. 

I got it for free and whilst it's pretty much on its last legs, it still works ok.

When I finally get a proper cutter, I will get a Xikar. Straight cut as I don't like v cuts.
