|Colibri Guillotine Carbon Fiber Cutter|
Sparkly and manly, these two words do not belong in the same sentence together! There is always the exception to the rule and today it is the Colibri Carbon Fiber cigar cutter in silver. In a world where we like our toys, a fine cigar cutter should be on the list. Upon opening the package you quickly realize you are holding a serious cigar cutter. Visually and the shear heft of the cutter make you want to take a closer look. If you do not like heavy cutters in your pocket, this cutter is likely not for you. She is a definite heifer!
The carbon fiber done in silver gives the cutter a "high class" look, not as toned down as the black Colibri Carbon Fiber option. The silver carbon compliments the high polish extremely well. There is a single high polished screw located in each of the four corners giving it a little extra aesthetic appeal. On either side are two rubber grips to better aid in using the guillotine cutter. The center button deploys the blades to either side.
The blades slide out very quickly, extremely responsive. Two very sharp blades in a classic guillotine style are ready for almost any cigar. The carbon fiber cutter will take up to a 64 ring gauge. Keep in mind with all high polished items they tend to show marks/surface scratches very easily. In review, I would say the Colibri Guillotine Slice Carbon Fiber cutter is well constructed, looks great, designed well, and had no issues make a clean cut on my cigars. Lastly, she is not cheap with an MSRP of $85.
Pros - construction, aesthetics
Consideration - weight of cutter
