The $150,000 Dragon Cutter

If you’re trying to truly make a statement with your cigar cutter, imagine pulling one from your pocket that’s as expensive as a new Aston Martin Vantage. Quality Importers Trading Co., the makers of Xikar, have allied with New York City jeweler

Jacob & Co. to produce a series of high-end, customized cigar accessories, starting with a one-off called Dragons Chasing Flaming Pearl Xi.

The cutter is eye-popping and heavy, made entirely of 18K gold and gems—save for the steel blades. It weighs nearly half a pound, with 1,940 red rubies on the front and back and a pearl at the head, resting on a crown of golden fire and flanked by a pair of 18K-gold dragons. The design is inspired by the Chinese legend of dragons chasing a flaming pearl. Opening the jaws of the cutter separates the golden beasts, who come together toward their prize as you slice the head from your cigar. 

The cutter was made in New York, at Jacob & Co., and the two companies will make more accessories together, all of them customizable and available with diamonds, sapphires, gold and other rare metals and gems. 

“This is just the start of the relationship,” says Jacob Arabo, of Jacob & Co. “I’m excited about the incredible products we can create together.”
