What is a cigar cutter?
A cigar cutter is a mechanical device designed to cut one end off a cigar so that it may be properly smoked. Although some cigars are cut on both ends, or twirled at both ends, the vast majority come with one straight cut end and one end in a “cap” which must be cut off for the cigar to be smoked.

While certain cigars call for using different cutters – it’s extra difficult to punch a torpedo, for instance – no one single cutter or method is “right,” “wrong” or “preferred.” You do what makes your cigar taste good, when we’re talking straight up Parejo shaped cigars. But interestingly enough, the method you use to clip your cigar can make a significant difference in the intensity of the smoke. A classic double blade cutter 56r cut or a scissors cut provides a wide amount of surface area at the head for a smooth, open draw. If you opt to go for a v-cut or a cat’s-eye cut on your cigar, you’ll notice a change in the concentration of the smoke and the flavors you pull through the cigar. The flavors are richer and fuller; that’s because the now-smaller opening you’ve created in the cap is funneling the smoke through a narrower opening. Even smaller is the resulting hole from punch or bullet cigar cutters; with an opening less than half of the surface area of a guillotine cut, a cigar that’s been punched might seem like it has a bit of a harder draw. But the resulting big blast of flavor that’s being channeled on the palate is what really speaks to fuller-bodied cigar smokers, upping the intensity even more. There is a downside, however, as focusing the flavor also focuses the tars and the other elements of the cigar that can lead to harsh flavors if you over smoke it…so be aware.

An interesting trial would be to take your regular go-to cigar, and try it with a different cut: does it smoke more robustly with a v-cut or punch cut? Is it more smooth with a guillotine cut, if that’s not what you regularly use? Try a cut you’ve never used and see if it makes a difference in the flavor intensity of your cigar.
