Colibri's Slice Cutter

With the 6 x 60 cigar now a standard in many brand portfolios, smokers are in need of a bigger cutter.

Colibri's Slice is a 64-ring cutter capable of clipping even the fattest of smokes, but thin enough to fit in the fifth pocket of your favorite pair of jeans.

The cutter's patented design feels nice in the palm of your hand and the Slice's 440 stainless steel blades provide a consistent, clean and precise cut.

A spring-loaded pull button releases the blades, which have rubber grips built into the blade handles. The button's action is smooth with little fuss to it, if any.

The Slice can be found at finer tobacco shops and sells for $59. It comes in four new finishes: pinstriped 18K yellow-gold, white lacquer with 18K yellow-gold, black lacquer with gunmetal and thunder grey lacquer with chrome.

The Slice cutter that I bought from an online retailer has been somewhat of a let down. I found there is too much lateral play in the blades resulting in a less than precise cut. I returned to using my old more traditional double guillotine cutter.

I agree with Thomas. The one I bought was horrible. I returned it to make sure it wasn't a fluke and sure enough the 2nd one I got was just as bad. Its has horrible bladed and it tore the wrapper on ever cigar I tried to cut with it. I tried to contact Colibri about the cutter and they basically told me tuff. I went running back to my Xikar cutter.

Agree with both posts. I love the way it looks but from a build perspective it doesnt even come close to a xikar xi or a cuban crafters perfecto cutter. This thing destroyed three cigars before I chucked in the trash

It is absolutely the worst cutter that I have ever used. The blades are ridiculously dull. It is a piece of junk. I wish Zino made a cutter for the larger gauge cigars that I love.
I agree with all of the above postings. I bought this cutter to add a "nice" one to my collection. I am very disappointed in the way it cuts. Very uneven and poor cutting quality!
