V cut at home or in more civilised surroundings, fingernail circle if out in the field as I often am due to my propensity for losing stuff.

Whatever I feel like, I do sometimes judge on how firm the cigar is what cut I would need. If the draw seems lose when judging a smaller draw surface will be enough, if it's firm or the draw is less than what I thought it will be I sometimes do a X cut. If the cigars feels firm I use a straight cut. I don't have a punch except for fingernails.

Small punch first. Bigger punch or straight cut until it draws to my preference.

Punch. Doesn’t mess with the wrapper, more controlled draw.

Because this 👍

I've gone from using the punch to cutting the cap off with the sharp little blade on this SA cigar punch. For a tapered or fat cigar it's a straight cut.

Usually the Xikar XO/straight cut, I prefer a v for tapered heads, 54 rg and above a double v cross-cut, on the move a small bullet punch from my pocket or the bottom of my cheapo quad lighter.

I prefer Colibri V-Cut the most, since it gives more intense flavor than any other cuts IMHO. Will try Cuban Crafters Dos Chabetas Perfect Cutter for straight cut.

This.

Colibri V cuts keep things clean & works brilliantly on most sticks, save jaw-breakers & skinnies.

I prefer a punch. Just big enough to get good draw. I have the tool Joeypots posted above, the three size choices are awesome. I like that a punch leaves some of the "shoulder" intact, it leads to less problems later in the cigar and I prefer the feel of it. I like Scissors for straight cuts, the JJ Fox scissors have been my go to straight cutter since they released them. Very sharp and easy to control. I've never understood V cuts or had any desire to purchase a V cutter. The asymmetry bothers me. Haha.
