Aficionado Tips On Cutting Cigars

By Kayla Kelly

As you may (or may not) already know, the way you cut a cigar will affect the way it smokes. What we mean by that, simply put, is that the more you cut off of a cigar before you smoke it, the more smoke intake you're going to be exposing yourself to. Of course, that may be desirable. It's ultimately a matter of personal preference. Just keep in mind that, the more smoke intake you expose yourself to, the more strength your cigar is going to seem to have.

First, let's talk about how to use cigar scissors to cut a cigar. It's important to understand at the outset that which type of cigar scissors you use will directly affect the way your cigar smokes. It also has to do with what type of cigar you're cutting. For example, on a torpedo cigar, the more you cut, the stronger the cigar will be. That's because your smoke intake will be higher. As a general rule, you shouldn't cut any more than one eight of inch from a regular sized cigar.

Let's look at one particularly popular type of cigar cutter first. It's called the guillotine. This one is also called a "straight" cutter, and it does exactly what you think. It removes the top from the cigar by the cap. There are two different types of cutters in this category. First, there's the single blade cutter. Then, you guessed it, there's the double blade cutter. They're safe to carry around, too. Usually, aficionados prefer the double blade cutter, because its cuts are generally cleaner.

Never put the blades at the upper limit of the cigar's cap (bordering on the body of the cigar). Instead, position them slightly under the cap's edge. If you cut too high, you will tear the wrapper and this can ruin the cigar by causing the wrapper to unravel, or by pulling out an excessive amount of filler.

A hole punch cutter is also referred to as a "bullet." Lest you get the mistaken impression that it should always be avoided entirely, we will point out one of its strengths. If you're wanting to smoke a fuller bodied cigar without being overwhelmed, then this type of cutter can be a great choice, because it limits your smoke intake.
