Colibri Releases A Limited-Edition Cigar Cutter to Honor CRA
The cutter’s hard rubber center is finished with an eye-catching custom “CRA Blue” (an official color of CRA), and is not available on any other Colibri cutter. The bold, white CRA acronym on the front contrasts perfectly with the CRA Blue, as does the red CRA logo on the back. Cigar Aficinado calls this cutter “an overall visual knockout.”
The limited-edition cutter is reasonably priced at $45.00 and in keeping with CRA’s mission to support brick and mortar tobacconists; it’s only available at CRA’s Platinum-Level Great American Cigar Shops™. Visit www.CigarRights.org/GACS for a complete list.
“We wanted it to be a conversation piece,” said Mann. “[The cutter] can open up a lot of discussion of what CRA stands for and fights for.”
