Colibri Cutter V-Cut

This Colibri Cutter V-Cut is one of the gifts I received on Valentine's day from my fantastic wife.

Quick Details:
  • Operation: Spring loaded release
  • Style: V-Cut
  • Blade: Stainless Steel
  • Cigar Size: Up to 60 ring
  • Price: $39.00

For decades now I've been mainly using punches and low priced V cutters on my cigars. My typical V cutter is one of those I'd pay around $4.00 for and they really tear part of the cap out instead of cutting it.

Once I pulled the Colibri out of its' nice gift box I was surprised by it's weight, it was hefty, and that it had a spring loaded opening system. I thought that was a pretty neat feature. The stainless steel blade is much different than the cheap V cutters, it has a trailing point so it actually removes the V from the cigar starting at the top of the cap and cuts the bottom of the V last. I have tested it on several cigars and so far the super sharp blade has not caused any extra cap damage.

 A couple of things I found while reading on Colibri.com, they designed this cutter to create a deeper than normal V to increase the draw, see the picture below, and there is no warranty on their cutters.

Overall this is a great looking product that functions as good as it looks. It's a great addition to my cutter collection!

I give it an 8 out of 10 rating!
