Xikar offers some of the finest cutters on the market. Made in Solingen, Germany, the quality and craftsmanship are evident from the moment you hold it in your hand. The spring-loaded, double guillotine design gives the cutter a look and performance like no other. The button release mechanism snaps the two super-hard stainless steel blades into the open position. The hardest, sharpest blade you can buy.
For the very best cut, consider the Xi3. Just by picking it up you instantly notice it’s a heavier, sturdier, more durable Xikar, built with a stronger frame and thicker steel blades. Plus, they’re offered in some very unique finishes - from exotic woods to carbon fiber.
Got the Xi3 with an order of Hemingways and am impressed with the quality. It has a great weight and with the Tech Rubber finish there's no sliding around. It's rock solid. Slide the lock, it springs open, clip your cigar, it locks shut. Razor sharp, no tearing the wrapper. A perfect cut every time. I'll have to start smoking Petite Robusto's so I can use it more often.
