For anyone who appreciates a relaxing, high-quality stogie in their downtime, having a cigar cutter onhand is of the utmost importance. It’s also a chance to show off your own personal style and dedication to quality. After all, you wouldn’t want to prep your expensive cigars with a second-rate cutter. And if you pick up one of Benchmade’s limited-edition 1500-series cigar cutters, you won’t have to.
With three available models, these guillotine-style 1500 Cigar Cutters are the perfect smoker’s tool — especially for those who value supremely good looks, as well as top-tier functionality. And while all three feature a patent-pending design and auto-AXIS release mechanism (for the perfect cut every time), they do differ in their construction materials. The first — the 1500-191 — boasts an S90V blade mated to a Raffir Noble Black Waves handle. The second — the 1500-192 — features a DLC coated CPM-S90V blade and Raffir triple-stabilized blue Poplar Burl handle. And the last — the 1500-193 — is equipped with a Ladder pattern Damasteel blade with a Raffir triple-stabilized spalted Beech handle. The first of the trio will be made for just one calendar years and the other two are limited to just 50 examples. They will cost you $450, $900, and $1,200, respectively.
