Xikar Pull Punch Cigar Cutter Review
This unit was generously sent in by viewer Dan Forsley and will be going out in a future giveaway soon so keep an eye out for it – thank you again Dan!
Featuring an all-metal design, this unit is small and bullet shaped with a keyring for attachment. Usually sporting a screw cap this instead utilizes a presumably magnetically secured extending barrel with a telescoping cutter end that appears at full extension. It has a built in cleaner so simply closing the barrel pushes out and tobacco leaf debris. The cutter itself is sharp as can be and is larger than the vast majority on the market, a VERY welcome thing for ring gauges above 50. Operation is smooth and simple there’s really no way to screw up a punch cutter unless it’s not sharp. This is. It has plenty of closing force to stay retracted in your pocket, there is zero concern about accidental extension. Pricey but well worth it IMO considering the engineering and manufacturing quality. Plus it carries the Xikar lifetime warranty (as long as they still produce it you’ll get another if you experience a problem).
