In the market for a second cutter. Was a firm believer of Xikar Xi's but after my last one dulled I sent it back and got a new one and the quality is definitely not the same. Was looking at the perfect cutter. I kinda hate the idea of it telling you how far you can cut but it seems to be one of the few solid guillotine cutters on the market that hasn't gone down the tubes. Does anyone own one? Does it handle a second cut well if needed, or does it split the wrapper/head? Thanks!

I have one. I like it. No issues with dulling yet. You can cut more if you need to, but I rarely do. Works well for less frequent or newer smokers that come by and over cut their cigars.

The cutter with training wheels as my son in law says. Love mine but recently got a kickass counter top cutter that does all my work at home. On the road though, perfect cutter is great.

I've had their perfecto cutter since 2013. Never had a problem with it. Still sharp and have never touched the blades. I cant say the same for my other cutters I have paid far more for.

I love mine. I will sometimes wet the cigar to keep from some cracks, but it's so easy to use, I never have to screw with it, cut in the dark, you name it. Think I spent $20. After a PerfecDraw, it's the best cigar accessory I own.

Had one since 2008. It’s basically all I use but recently have been using the punch on the bottom of my Prometheus lighter for the sake of carrying less stuff.  Never had an issue with the perfect cutter.

    *I've purchased the Cuban Crafters guillotine cutter in gold tone; along with my collection of Zino self sharpening guillotine, and a XIKAR V-cutter too. No complaints about any of them along with my Mean Sardine guillotine! ;)

My favorite is a “Vertigo” plastic V cutter that I buy every year or so for $5.00. I usually do a cross cut. Works for me! Call me a rube, if you wish...

Which table top cutter did you buy?  Looking to pickup one for the homestead as well.

Palio cutters for straight cut and Colibri V-cut.  I've been told the Palio cutters are self sharpening.. Haven't done enough research to actually find out, but its the only cutter I've been using for roughly 4 years and its not dull AT ALL..

Love the Palio cutter.  Heavy duty and sharp blades.  My only knock is that you've got to finesse some cuts on certain ring gauges.  A 48 is too big for the smaller opening and too small for the larger one.  I've learned to push the lever down first, rest the head on top of the blade on the larger opening and then as I release the lever, I hold the cigar steady and then lower it slightly into the opening before pushing the cutting lever down to make the cut.  Works just fine.  This thing is heavy too so you don't have to hold the cutter at all to keep it from sliding.  To me, that was the winning selling point.

Perfect, I'm sold!  Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, I picked up the Palio Table Top Cutter too, last November. I can attest how sharp the blades are, you'll have no issue making sharp cuts. The lever takes some getting used to as you need to press down quite hard.

I've got one and it works great. Also got the colibri v and straight cut in one cutter and that works real well too. For scissors have a pair of the sisuman and eventually want to get the El Casco cutter for when at home. I find acquiring accessories almost as addictive as acquiring cigars!

My favorite cutter for some time…just keep it razor sharp.
