Cat's Eye Cutter

Also known as a v cutter or wedge cutter, a cat’s eye cutter (see photo) has a v-shaped blade that gauges an opening in the head of a cigar that is shaped somewhat like a cat’s pupil. These cigar cutters were far more popular in the early 1900s, and many antique models are designed for the smaller cigars of that era.
