Clipping a wafer cigar

Q. Lately I’ve gotten into smoking the Java Claro Wafe and Acid Wafe cigars because I like the shape. The only problem I seem to have with them is when it comes to clipping. I’ve been using a double blade cutter, but because of the flatness of the cigar, sometimes it’s hard to get it in just the right position to get the right cut. Any suggestions?

A. I would suggest using a V-cutter instead of a guillotine or double-blade. It will give you a nice clean cut, and open up just enough of the head to give you a good draw. Morevoer, the head will naturally open up a little more after a while just from holding the cigar in your mouth.
