Cigar Accessories for Beginners

Starting a hobby in cigars can be a very daunting task when trying to understand all the accessories that have been engineered specifically to enhance this treasured past time.

Some are cut and dry,while others need a little explanation.


The Guillotine is generally the most popular option when cutting a
cigar. There are two types of Guillotine Cutters, single blade
and double blade.

The single bladed guillotine gets its name from having a single blade and is single action - meaning only one side moves.

The double bladed guillotine has two blades and is double action -
meaning both sides move. The double blades deliver a more precise straight cut than that of a single bladed guillotine.

A punch cutter is small circular razor that when pushed into the
head of the cigar, leaves a small circular opening.

The punch is perfect for mixed filler cigars and will give you a
clean cut that will prevent bits of tobacco from ending up in your

A v-cutter is a single action cutter that provides more surface
area without exposing you to loose tobacco. When applied to the cigar, the result is a V shape at the tip.

Scissor cutters provide an identical cut to that of a guillotine.
Made from surgical stainless steel, scissors create a precise straight cut, all while making you look upscale and stylish! Scissors also extend wide enough to cut any sized cigar.

Lighters. We know what you’re thinking. Fire is fire...right? Not
exactly. Lighting your cigar is a matter of personal preference,
but we suggest either wooden matches, or a butane lighter.

There is no arguing that a high quality butane lighter is going to

Lighters can range from a single flame, double flame, triple flame,
quad flame...the list goes on! Pocket sized, table sized, soft flame, torch...there is a lighter out there that will cover your

Regardless of the lighter you’s best to use triple
refined butane or more to ensure a clean and trouble free lighter over time.

When it comes to cigar cases, it really comes down to quantity and

Some cases are designed to be sleek and streamlined.

Other cases are designed to withstand more of a beating, but
tend to be a bit bulkier, and won’t fit as easily in a blazer.

Typically made from leather, synthetic, wood or plastic, cigar
cases come in all shapes and sizes. Some case are crush proof. Some are water proof and some are both. In the end, it’s all about what fits your individual needs. There is a case out there for any occasion.

Ashtrays are pretty straightforward. Like cases, they come in
all shapes and sizes. No matter the occasion, we’ve got
you covered with an ashtray to fityour style and more importantly,
your cigars!
