For cigar accessories, black is the new black. With the color’s understated sophistication and ability to accessorize with almost anything, black has never gone out of style. Moreover, any cigar aficionado looking to deck out his den in dark tools will find an array of choices available now.

Start with a proper black ashtray. The Colibri Quasar ($150) is an eye-catching receptacle constructed from metal alloy. It boasts a modernist, multifaceted body with space for six cigars. The melamine base has nonscratching rubber footpads. 

The Xikar 009 Pull-Out Punch ($44.99) is a sleek, bullet-shaped cigar cutter with a retractable, circular blade. Tug on the body of the punch, applying force in opposite directions, and a razor sharp 9-mm blade jumps out. After punching a hole in the cap of your cigar, gently push the Pull-Out Punch back together and the circular blade withdraws into the cutter.

Brizard & Co.’s Venezia Fountain Lighter ($220) has a powerful jet flame that overcomes windy, outdoor conditions (e.g. on a golf course or boat). But with its leather wrapping, the lighter is just as at home in a smoking lounge. Pictured in black caiman, the Venezia also comes in stingray and ostrich leathers.

A reliable humidor will anchor your collection. The Daniel Marshall Ambiente 125 Cigar Humidor comes in a black matte finish ($445). Marshall’s humidors are known for their quality, construction and spot-on humidity control. This model has a gold-plated lock and key, a solid Spanish-cedar interior, a preinstalled humidification system and digital hygrometer.

Now that you’ve laid the foundation for a respectable set of black cigar accessories, you can expand on the premise, because black matches with everything and you’ll only enhance the decor.
