How to cut that Cuban cigar

May 20, 2008
Almost everything that has to do with cigars is surrounded by some sort of tradition. This tradition may have been passed down to you by other individuals or it might be something that you do every time that you pick up a cigar of your own.

Even cutting a Cuban cigar is an art in it self. Cut it right, and you'll have one of the best smokes to enjoy. Cut it wrong and than you just have to suffer. Don't worry or get nervous if its your first time because you will find a way that suits you. Around the world, their are three styles of cutting it so lets see what will suit you.

So before you begin to cut it, have a quick look at the end of your Cuban cigar. Upon close inspection, you will discover that a cap is placed, made from Cuban tobacco leaves to seal the freshness of your cigar and to let you know what area to cut. This is the part that you must eliminate and draw you smoke from. Caps are standard in all Cuban cigars and are placed with the up most skill.

Cut the cap off but leave 25% of it on their, just to be on the safe side. Cuban cigars, although hand rolled, can be easily unwrapped if you make the wrong cut, so take extreme precaution when doing it. Be swift yet gentle and after you execute the proper cut, you should be doing just fine.

So what cutter should you get? I suggest trying out the Snap cutter or also known as the 'guillotine'. You basically slide your cigar inside it and quickly drop the blade on the outer cap. These are well known and most preferred as you can fit them in you suit jacket and take them on the go with you. Plus the cuts it makes is perfect for all Cuban cigar lovers. This blade was invented somewhat recently and has caught on fairly well with the rest of the Cuban cigar smoking crowd.

So what cutter should you get? All of them friend because Cuban cigars come in multiple shapes and sizes. Some have a thicker ring gauge than others and some are just shaped completely different like the torpedo which is shaped like a little torpedo. Yes the variety Cuban cigars come in is truly appreciated. So at the end of the day, you should have all the cutters required so you never end up missing out on a nice relaxing occasion of smoking Cuban cigars.

Some people use scissors but stay away from that. Use professional cutters. After all, professional cigar smokers use professional equipment. Just go for a walk to your local cigar establishment and you'll find all the cutters you need. Start your own cigar cutting ritual. You deserve it.
