The V-cutter has made a come back. It does exactly what the name implies; it creates a wedge shaped cut through the head of the cigar. It makes a deeper cut into the cap of a cigar than any other type of cutter, so you get a bigger draw.
To use the V-cutter, hold the cigar in one hand, the cutter in the other with the ends pulled open. Place the head of the cigar into the indentation or groove on the cutter. Push the head of the cigar toward the cutter and squeeze the cutter closed. You are left with a V shaped incision on the cap of the cigar.
V-cutters are incredibly inexpensive, however, they do have limited use because the blade cannot be sharpened or replace. The cut is gaining popularity because it gives more of a draw than a punch, but doesn’t create the loosened leaf that ends up in your mouth that comes from a regular cutter.
A V-cutter is something to try at least a few times to see if you like the draw it creates.
