XiKAR Xi1 cigar cutters give you the finest cigar cuts with extra power, efficiency, and ease. A lightweight aluminum body encases Rockwell HRC57 stainless steel blades in a spring-loaded, ergonomic shape. This is the finest cutter you can buy - GUARANTEED - and will cut cigars up to a 56 ring.
I like this design, super fine control of the cut, nice leather case, if you buy from the right place! Watch the humidity, as the end screws can oxidize, and enjoy! You'll lose this one, or have a buddy "borrow" it before it wears out!1 3
I smoke a 58 ring size which barely fits in the opening when fresh out of the box, but generally not if you re trying to refresh the cut when wet. The cutter has poor leverage given the angular design of the blades, and is difficult to slice through a bigger stick. I would not go bigger than 52 or 54 with this cutter. Much prefer the guillotine cutter designs over this.1 3
I received the Xikar Xi1 as a present 5 years ago. Stellar performance and still razor sharp. The last cutter you will ever need. Tex1 2
