A regular cigar cutter is known as a straight cutter or guillotine cutter. It is the most popular type of cutter in the cigar world. It cuts off the desired amount of cap from the cigar for a great draw. This type of cutter can be made of a single blade, or two blades that come together in the middle. Most cutters have a large opening in the center to accommodate all different ring gauges (sizes of cigars).
To use the cutter, line up the cigar so it is perpendicular to the blade. Try to hold it straight and not at an angle. Hold the cigar in one hand, the cutter in the other. Open the blades and put just the cigar just inside the hole and squeeze the ends together. This type of cigar comes in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors.
