Xikar Revolution Cutter Shipping This Month

Accessories company Xikar brings a novel mechanical concept to the world of cigar cutters, and the new model only requires a simple flick of the wrist to operate. Called the Revolution, the cutter was previewed at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas, and is expected to start shipping to retailers later this month.

The name “Revolution” refers not only to the cutter’s movement, but also to a design aspect that differs from standard Xikar cutters: the absence of a button used to engage the blades. Instead, a rotary-action wheel around the unit turns the blade like a steering wheel, with grooves for your fingers to grip. When you turn the wheel to the left, the synchronized blades open, which allows you to insert your cigar. Once inserted, turn the wheel to the right and the two spring-assisted blades move in sync to slice the head off of your cigar. 

A hole at the base allows you to insert your ring finger or pinky to stabilize the cutter. In keeping with the trend of thick ring smokes, the cutters accept cigars of up to 70 ring gauge. 

The Xikar Revolution cutters come in three different colors: black with silver blades, silver with black blades and a limited-edition version with black blades and a rose gold finish. While the first two retail for $159.99 each, the limited-edition rose gold cutter will retail for $249.99. Only 250 numbered rose gold editions are being released. The body of each cutter is made of a lightweight but sturdy aluminum alloy.

Xikar products are owned and distributed by Quality Importers Trading Co.
