After 16 beers, a Chinese throwing star, and a trip to the emergency room, the Shuriken Cutter was born....

The cigar industry is loaded with genius minds - ok maybe not - but some Joe Six-Pack had a genius idea when he invented this cutter. It looks kind of odd, but the design is functionally perfect....and it cuts extremely well too. Simply open the device, carefully insert cigar, and gently push. The Shuriken Cutter creates 6 tidy slits in the cap, while keeping it fully intact, but opening it enough for a perfect draw. Sometimes, it's so clean you won't even notice the slits. But take a pull on the cigar and be amazed. Plus, it does torpedos too. It's one of those gotta-see-it-to-believe-it kind of things. But for $30, you'll surely be impressed. Remember, you've always got the reassurance of our industry-leading return policy - not that you'll need it.

Quick and clean
Really like this, typical press down once and you’re good to go, If the draw is tough one more press down typically gets the job done. Plus no mess

Great cutter
Good clean cuts with minimal effort. No lose leaf bits that have to be spit out after lighting.

Great idea but
They are a great idea but the first time I used one 2 of the blades broke off into my cigar

I like the way it
I like the way it doesn’t open the end and the cigar will not, what I call “bleed”. The closed end acts as a filter

BAD CUTTER
Keep your money and dont ruin your cigars. Ive tried this cutter on about a dozen different sticks and it has shredded mabout eight of them when pulling it off. Good idea but a very poor design

Cuts too deep
To get a good draw you have to slit the end of the cigar a 1/2 inch or so and then in order to get a good seal you have to have the cigar so deep in your mouth that it feels wrong. I've tried it a few time on different robustos and have been frustrated with it each time.

Shuriken cutter
Works ok sometimes pulls the cap off. Also by the end of the cigar in some cases it's falling apart. Prefer bullet cutter.

Different
I like the cut. It takes some getting used to drawing from your cigar after utilizing this type of cut. I would like to see this cutter in an all metal version for the same price.

Revolutionary
I was intrigued, when I first saw the cutter. The product worked to perfection and is now my go to cutter.

Great Draw
I really enjoy this cutter. Provides a great draw. The only down side is that, depending on the wrap of the cigar, it can take the cap off. Also, if you have a longer smoke, the end can start to fall apart.

Love this company!
As usual we are happy with every purchase! Thank you c.i. for awesome shipping too!

So-so
I gave it a try after many years using a basic cutter. Meh, not impressed with the draw and it seems like one needs to exert to much pressure to make the cut. Prefer my punch most of the time.

Tears cigars up!
I tried it three times and each time it totally destroyed the end of the cigar. Maybe user-error? Not sure.

Good idea but doesn't work well
The tip of the rapper is left in the cutter... and it changes the taste of the cigar. But great novelty item.

Allows a excellent draw without being overly big.

interesting
I usually use the traditional cutter but I saw this and wanted to give it a shot. You certainly don't have to worry about your stick unwrapping. One of the most important things to me when enjoying a cigar is draw. This cutter works for that. I don't know how to explain it the smoke enters your mouth rather interestingly. I would say give it a shot no harm no foul.

Ease of use
I bought one and it is now my go to cutter. I like it especially for when I am golfing, I tend not to put the cigar down and the end do not collapse.

Shuriken Cutter
Doesn't allow for an adequate draw by itself. Still need a cigar cutter or a punch to open up the cigar for a good draw. The ring sizes I tried were 58's and 60's.

Interesting cutter
I smoke a wide variety of cigars so I can't say this cutter will replace all the others. It doesn't work on a torpedo or box pressed cigar. It does work on a perfectly humidified cigar with a round cap. In that case it works great! The slits it makes in the cigar keeps the cap intact and the draw is good. If the cigar is in the least bit fragile or brittle you will end up cracking the wrapper and have a tobacco salad in your mouth. Ring gauges from 50-56 are ideal fit for this cutter.

Shuriken Cutter
Might use it in a pinch with smaller ring sizes but it can't compare to traditional and regular cutters - hard time with draw after using the Shuriken cutter.

Not A Gimick
I wasn't sure when I ordered the Shuriken Cutter about it performing as advertised. Not only did it perform but exceeded alll my expectations. If you smoke cigars this is for you. Forget all the guillotine cutters. Get this! Bob U

Great for your collection but not great for use.
Great for your collection but not great for use. The cutter will only work if you push the blades as deep as you can however this causes the cap to completely off and starts destroying the cigar. You are also left with a cap in the cutter which is almost impossible to get out. In the rare moments when it works properly you get a large build up of tar at the slits causing a very nasty flavor. Once again, great for the collection but not great for use.

Pretty cool little cutter
Works well on dome cigar and is not as well on torpedo ends. Make sure you push down all the way because he will feel some resistance and you have to keep pushing for her to make a full cut

Alright cutter
It is okay, but it takes practice to use. And if done wrong it will tear up the cap. When done right, it works and has a good draw.

Low expectations
Works as advertised but for me it changed the flavor of every cigar. I didn't like that.

Nice Punch
This is a great small punch. Works with any size cigar. Puts enough slots for a decent draw on your favorite cigar.

Excellent cutter!. Prevents tobacco fallout like you get from trimming the end. Well worth it!.

nice cutter for softer caps
been using shuriken for a few weeks now - works well with softer capped cigars, not real well with harder ones - nice option to the v, guillotine and bullet style.

Cutter
Not a bad idea,mostly clean slices but on occasion will pull pieces of wrapper off tip.still need to use guillotine cut on torpedo tips to get a good draw. I like it overall.

Gimmick
Made of cheap plastic. When used, cigars will not draw very good unless you cut the cigar as deep as you can. But it causes the cap and head of the cigar to come apart. Regular cutter for me from now on.

Innovative...some sticks require a more conventional cutter though....hard draw if the middle of the stick needs to be exposed.

The BEST
Fantastic device. Will save many many cigars from decapsulization and failure. Simple with good draw and little damage to cap!

Hints
I really like this cutter. It does have a learning curve. One tip...easy does it. At first I was pushing too hard and deep. All you want to do is cut easy into the cap. If you try multiple cuts it will shred the cap. Also, drawing is a little different. Use a slight biting with that teeth to open the slits. I lost my first one. Think it is now enjoyed by my son. It disappeared right after a visit.

I'll stick to my guillotine
The first time I used it I didn't push the cigar in deep enough to make a good cut. The second time I pushed the cigar in to far, when I pulled it out the cap was still in the cutter. The third time was a little better, but after about 10min of smoking the slits became clogged.

Works great.
Slits give a good draw. Easier to use than traditional cutter.

Cool cutter
I've used it several times since I've got it and it worked on each cigar and none were the same type it worked great only thing is you don't see the cuts and if you try to put the cigar back you take chunks out if it's not ligned up with the first cuts , works great get one and enjoy

sometimes the oil that collects is not so hot when it hits my tongue so I haven't experienced that yet with the Shuriken cutter!

Shurikan Cutter
I used the cutter on 3 cigars. Whatever oils or other substances are in the cigar accumulate around the slits in the head of the cigar, making it taste bitter and unsmokeable. A novel idea but not practicle.
Customer Testimonials
Works great.
JK of Grandville, MI
This cutter is great. But a few things to know before you use it. Some of the smaller ring cigars will slide way down in there. This creates long cuts. This can make the end of the cigar very soggy by the time you get halfway done. With the smaller cigars, only pushing about halfway down. Larger cigar should be okay. All in all it is been a good experience, but if the slits are too long, you can make the smoke very hot on your tongue. Just need to experiment with it.
GB of Stuart, FL
Good cutter! I keep it in the car for any occasion! I usually make 2 cuts, as one doesnt draw for me as I'd like, but there are a few stogies out there that will only need one cut. You can also make one cut and apply some slight pressure while you draw but I prefer the 2 cuts. If you are not careful, you may tear the leaf of a cigar you are attempting to cut, I admit I made this stupid mistake! Push on the flat part of the cigar, dont hold it by the sides!
AS of Aurora, IL
It works. However, you have to be mindful of the cigar you're going to use it on. Because of the depth of the cut you kind of have to put the cigar farther in your mouth than you would with a cutter to seal the draw. I had to toss about a 1/4 of a cigar that I like because of it.
FS of Denair, CA
One cut is not enough for good draw. Two or three cuts and it draws well, but before the cigar is gone, the cuts in the cap have turned into wrapper strands loose in my mouth. It tried it.....I don't like it! Back to regular cutter or a punch.
TM of Birmingham, AL
I've had this cutter for over a year. Still cuts clean, I don't use it on ever type of sticks, not really great for torpedoes. Leaves a clean edge and a good draw.
LG of Raleigh, NC
This is a good cutter for most cigars, although I agree with a previous suggestion that it needs more blades or a small center punch. It does not, however work on any irregular shaped cigars, as it mutilates the head. I'm back to using a good guillotine cutter.
KV of North Chesterfield, VA
I bought this cutter on a whim, and I'll never use another cutter again. Perfect draw, and if it isn't, just stick your stogie in again. By leaving the cap in tact I get much more flavor from the cigar. This is how cigars are supposed to smoke, and that's from somebody whose been smoking for over 13 years. Worth every penny of its $20.
DP of Wilmington, DE
I bought one of these on the whack-a-deal when I was checking out the other day. I was expecting to get was the one in the picture, which looks to be some sort of cast-aluminum ... what I got was some sort of composite plastic. Oh well, I thought, as long as it works well I don't care what it's made of. Next issue, it does cut small slits in the end of the cigar but the draw (even after biting down as suggested) is still minimal AND like others have commented the tars build up quickly so that by the time you are close to half-way all you can taste is the bitterness of the tars. I gave it away within 2 days of purchase and the person I passed it on to brought it back the next day with the same complaints! If you have one of these and are content then good for you but, I'll just stick to my punches or regular cutters thanks!
DH of Calera, AL
Simply not a fan. The draw is hard because of the slits, maybe it's because of the way I'm using it.... So far I'm not impressed. Think I'll stick with my Xikar MTX...
PK of Windsor, NY
Just got tool and tried it out, didn't care for it. Tar collected on the cuts and gave a bitter taste to smoke. I will try another....
JG of Waxahachie, TX
I personally think a big improvement to this cutter would be to either add more slits to the center of the cutter or add a small punch "plunger" cutter to the center of the cutter in case I wanted more of an opening to draw through....
DL of HENDERSON, NV
Greatest $20 I've spent on a cutter. I was unsure at first, but now, it's the only one I use. Awesome idea and I would recommend this to anyone.
TR of Colorado Springs, CO
Tried this on two cigars. So far - half way through the tars from them become gathered at that slits and both of them seemed to get bitter. So Great for the half way through cigar - but watch out for the tars building and may ruin a good smoking cigar.
TP of MAPLEWOOD, MN
Neat design and all, not the "perfect" draw in my book, doesn't allow enough smoke for my preference. The main reason I dislike the cutter is the fact that it draws the smoke right against the back of my teeth, top and bottom.
TB of Mount Sterling, IL
I purchased this cutter before a 'guys motorcycle vacation' and we all gave it a try. The first time wasn't a success, however I think it was due to our error and the cigars. My 2nd attempt was a better experience. I'll be keeping this and perfecting the technique. I mostly use a V-cutter and still get the occasional cap unraveling. This is a nice product!
GC of Norristown, PA
This thing is GREAT! Where have you kept this jewel? It changes the entire-experience of cigar-enjoyment! I love the way one can adjust the "draw", to their own pleasure, just by simply biting-down. And it eliminates "tongue-burn", for us MILD-lovers! And, I'd bet that it might help with the flow of a too-tightly wrapped cigar, too. Seems to work the best on the larger ring-size smokes, where there's a lot of "cap" to work with---although not real sure about torpedo-style? I don't care! Either way, you ain't gettin' THIS-one back.....!☺
RS of Jackson, MO
This cutter is UNBELIEVABLE!!. When I bought it (along with my favorite Rockies), I didn't expect it to be that good but wanted to try it because it looked different. I used it yesterday for the first time and boy, was I surprised. I followed the instructions and when I looked at my cigar, it looked like nothing had happened. I couldn't see any of the cuts and I said to myself "this is a bunch of BS". But I took my first drag and realized how perfect the cuts were. The cigar remained intact, there was no unravelling of the wrapper, no harshness at the end. Overall a perfect smoke. GREAT CUTTER!!!
PP of Mine Hill, NJ
IMHO, this product is the greatest invention since the cigar itself! My enjoyment of cigars has improved 100% just by using this cutter instead of a traditional cutter. The draw is PERFECT, and even my strongest smokes don't "bite" any more; plus the "after effects" are greatly minimized. I've recommended this cutter to all my see-gar buds.
TT of Tulsa, OK
I wish I could say I am having the same results. I have tried this cutter on 5 different cigars (different brands) and ended up having to use my traditional cutter to smoke them. I am doing it like the video is showing and the cigars are good quality premiums which smoke perfect once cut the traditional way. I am open to any tips. Great idea, I just wish it worked better.
DB of Clearwater, FL
Got one of these cutters, works great!!! Save your $5 though and get one of the metal ones. I got one of the "leather" ones because I thought it would look nice but I'm not thrilled about pleather it actually cheapens a great product IMO.
EP of Naugatuck, CT
I just got this cutter in the mail today, and I tried it on one of my 5 vegas triple "A" cigars. I have to say I love it, got a really good draw from it.
TD of Flemington, NJ
I received a Shruiken cutter this past Christmas and it totally rocks. It has replaced all the other cutters in my cigar case...Punch, Guillotine, V-cut, and drill. I love the draw it provides and it seems to slightly improve or add to the taste of my favorite cigars. I've recommended my cigar buddies order one as they love it too...plus they keep borrowing mine!
HK of Beaverton, OR
Works just like it says and no bits in your mouth. It is just new enough to be a real conversation starter
JP of Van Buren, AR
Just bought one of these cutters......one word....FANTASTIC! Works on any cigar, even torpedos. I smoke a lot of tatiana's and this is the best cutter for the smaller ring sizes.
