Cigar Tech debuts revolutionary new cigar cutter at IPCPR 2011

Reading Time: 2 minutes

When closed the cutter looks like a big capsule. Once opened there are 6 razor sharp blades inside that cut slits around the top of your cigar. This allows the smoker to control the draw of their cigar by the amount of pressure applied. The new term for this cutting technique is called “I Draw Technology.” The cutter will be available in plastic composite models with a $20.00 SRP, as well as various anodized aluminum models with SRP’s ranging from $35.00-$40.00.

“The Shuriken cut draws the smoke evenly throughout the cigar, resulting in a cooler, more flavorful smoke,” said Belinda. “It positions the smoke onto the tongue where the most pleasant tastes are experienced, and the draw is controlled by the amount of pressure you use when placing the cigar in the cutter. It really is amazing to be able to control the draw of virtually any cigar with this unique cut.”

Shuriken composite cutters will be offered in countertop display boxes of 20 units, and Shuriken anodized cutters will be offered in pre-packaged units of 8. Some finishes include carbon fiber and exotic Ostrich wraps.There is also a complimentary display for the anodized models plus a cradle for an extra cutter that can be used by cigar store customers.

“This cutter utility is limitless” added Belinda. “It can be many sizes and shapes, with one thing in common: I draw technology. You can expect to see exciting variations of this cutter, including limited releases on the horizon.”

“I am very excited, not only to be able to finally launch this product after over a decade of development, but to launch it with a top-notch company like Cigar Tech,” said Chris Jones, inventor of the Shuriken cigar cutter. “It promises to be a stellar partnership. Plus, I’m confident that this product, plus the dynamic marketing and sales ability of Cigar Tech, will be a smashing success.”

Prior to starting Cigar Tech, Belinda Doyle had a very successful career with Drew Estate Cigars, and most recently was Vice President of Sales for Xikar, Inc. Cigar Tech is her first entrepreneurial endeavor in the Cigar Industry.
