X' Ashtray from C.A.O.

C.A.O. International Inc., inspired by the success of its Lx2 and Mx2 cigar brands, is coming out with the new 'X' ashtray, a practical yet stylish piece for any cigar room.

The ashtray, which is smoke gray with a distinguishable black pattern on top, similar to the one found on the x2 cigar brand boxes, sports four grooves in the shape of the letter X that hold your lit cigars . The piece stays true to C.A.O's tendency to push the limits of cigar tradition, but remain within the "bounds of good taste."

Produced from earthenware ceramic, the ashtray comes in two pieces, making ash disposal quick and easy. This two-piece body also cuts down on some of the odor stale cigar ash may emit.

The ashtray is lightweight, good if you need to slide it closer to a friend, and measures 10 inches by 7 1/2 inches so it should fit easily on most end tables.

The 'X' ashtray is scheduled to be released later this month with the suggested retail price of $39.95.
