Metal Trigger V Cutter
Here's a low-cost way to expand your cigar cutter collection. This ultra-sharp V cutter pops open at the push of a button, and cuts cigars up to a 54 ring. The slash-like cut is neat, clean, and exposes just the right amount of tobacco under the cap for a superb draw. (Leather case included.)
Same experience as Todd from Georgia. Worked well for a while, then broke, sending the cutter part and the internal springs flying. I think a much better design would be to pull the cutter out against the spring tension, locking it open, then using the spring compression to do the actual cutting. Dont see the point of using the spring to open the cutter - the tension of the spring does help w/ the cut a little bit, but not much. I'm a big fan of the V-Cut and generally use the $5 plastic V-Cutter. Being a cheapskate I try not to spend too much on lighters and cutters cause they typically get lost, but $10 seemed like a fair price for this product. I'm waiting to see what Famous does about replacing it.
After cutting about 20 cigars. I pressed the buttons to open it and it flew out the bottom across the room. throwing springs and metal pieces all over the place! It was actually pretty funny.
This solid feeling very effective V cutter is by far the best I have ever owned. It works for every cigar I have tried delivering a perfect "v" cut, one that I really preferred. The price is right for this beauty.
