Walnut Folding Cigar Ashtray with Accessories Review
This is a folding desktop ashtray unit sent in by cigarhumidors-online.com – thank you very much guys! My first impression is it looks GREAT and has quite a heft to it! It’s definitely something to compliment an office, end table, smoking room, etc. with a detailed walnut veneer and very thick lacquer finish. Opening the unit up it separates in to an ashtray and rest, with magnets holding the tray, a cutter plus a punch in place. The punch works great, with a spring loaded extractor, screw on cap and hole for attachment to a keychain. The cutter is a basic single guillotine that has ok results although no single blade cutter gives a very clean cut. It’s sharp enough to do the job though. Holding it in your hand it’s actually sharp edged and uncomfortable, however it’s not actually designed to be used in your hand. It’s to be placed in the unit to act as a stationary guillotine while placing the cigar on the rest. The results are not that great unfortunately. The other big negative for the unit is the construction. It’s made in China and has sub standard assembly. The hinges are not applied correctly, looking a bit sloppy with some play, and are placed so the unit does not open flat creating a rock when placing the whole thing down. The ashtray itself is a nice steel unit that easily removed by pressing to one side, where a slight indentation below creates a pivot allowing the bowl to be easily picked up. It’s a good size, enough for several cigars, although when using the cigar rest the ash will not be over the bowl for more than the start of a cigar, it’s separated by a couple inches.
