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. Franc.
