Colibri Slice Double Guillotine Cutter
Overall this is a pretty nice cutter, it has an attractive overall appearance, it's fairly sharp and the rubber grips on the sides are a nice touch. As I said earlier,  it was part of a set, and it matches well with the Colibri Sapphire single jet lighter that was included.
 On the Colibri website this cutter retails for $85.00 and is on sale for  $55.00 at the moment. This makes the $29.99 price tag a real deal. Another plus is the nice gift box that Colibri supplies with the cutter.

There was a bit of a learning curve to open this spring loaded cutter one handed due to the way it's designed. After some trial and error I solved the problem by putting my index finger in the closed cutter opening the pulling the button with my thumb.

Additionally, I cut fairly shallow on parejos shaped cigars and after cutting several cigars, it's just not sharp enough to do the trick for me, but it does work great on torpedo and perfecto shaped cigars.

Overall this is a nice looking, well functioning cutter that makes a nice addition to my cigar swag. There is one more point I should mention, on Colibri.com, it states there is a two year warranty on this cutter, but if you go to the warranty page, it only explains the lighter warranty. So I just don't know...

I give this Colibri slice double guillotine cutter a 7 out of 10 star rating.
