Xikar Mammoth Cutter Review

Xikar Mammoth Ivory
Xikar Mammoth Ivory Cigar Cutter Review
Looking for exclusivity and need a new cigar cutter? Xikar has the answer with a very unique cutter call Xi3 Fossil Mammoth Ivory Cutter. As you can see pictured above, the left and right side are made of 10,000 year old mammoth tusk ivory! Xikar finishes the ivory with what feels and looks like a smooth protective coating. Each cutter is truly unique and no two are alike. What makes these even more special is each piece is individually numbered, signed, certificate of authenticity, presented in a gift box, and will be a limited Xikar cutter. One thing that CLR did noticed are the sides are very smooth/slick. CLR used great caution when cutting to ensure the Mammoth cutter did not slip out while cutting. Do not want to know what happens to 10,000 year old ivory taking a fall on a hard surface. That would likely not be cool! When you hold the cutter for the first time it is rather thought provoking. How can you not wonder the history of ivory in your very hand. If you think this cutter is as awesome as it sounds it will set you back $399 at list price...Yeah, owning 10,000 year old mammoth ivory is not cheap, but it is a damn sweet Xikar cigar cutter for sure!

Pros - likely to have the rarest cutter amongst your amigos!
Consideration - this is not a cutter you casually toss around
