options are what you want in a cigar cutter, consider the Cut 100 Triad
from Lotus, which features two retractable punches and a single-blade
guillotine in one stylish unit.
The 6mm and 8mm punches extend opposite each other from the main body of the cutter via spring-loaded sliders controlled by the push of a thumb. Each slider runs along a slot that is shaped so the mechanism can be locked into place, preventing the punch from retracting unexpectedly while cutting your cigar.
A push of the trigger on the side of the main body extends the single-blade guillotine, which is capable of cutting cigars up to 54 ring gauge. Though there is some play in the guillotine when it is extracted, the 420JT stainless steel (same as the punches) blade still offers a swift cut.
The Cut 100 Triad comes in three finishes—black (pictured), gunmetal and brushed silver—and is backed by a lifetime warranty from the company. In addition, the cutter comes packaged in a gift box, and a free cutter pouch is available from Lotus by mail.
The Cut 100 Triad is available at local tobacconists (check www.integral-style.com) for $34.95.
