Shuriken Anodized Black Cutter Review

Shuriken Anodized Black Cigar Cutter Review
OK, this was a bear to photo and it shows, granted my skills/camera could have something to do with it....Today I am reviewing the Shuriken Anodized Black cigar cutter by Cigar Tech. What the **** is this thing?! Let's get one thing out of the way, this cutter is far from small. When I went online to buy one I was confused by the pictures and how this could cut a cigar successfully. Once my Shuriken cigar cutter arrived I was amazed and shocked at the actual size of this beast. It was not heavy, more like a large pill holder on steroids! The Shuriken cutter itself is about 2 1/2 inches long. I provided a picture next to a lighter to give a better grasp of the size. It certainly does not appear this large in the pictures if you if are buying online.

When the cutter is unscrewed it is divided into two halves. The end that is used to cut the cigar has six razor sharp "razor" blades housed in the cutter and can handle up to a 70 ring gauge cigar! To use the cigar cutter, gently press the cigar into the Shuriken, without twisting and turning. This will result in six precision cuts into the cap of the cigar. The beauty behind the cutter is the cigar stays intact and no loose tobacco. Cigar Tech uses what they call "I Draw" technology, effectively allowing you to decide how much or little draw to take from the cigar by applying varying levels of pressure.

Having my doubts about overall effectiveness, I cut into a Perdomo ESV 02 Maduro Torpedo. The Shuriken performed like a champ to my surprise. Nice easy, tobacco free draw. Keep in mind the cigars I keep stocked all tend to have easy draws in general. The real difference being a nice clean cut, keeping the cap in tact. The Shuriken is offered in many different finishes like gunmetal, ostrich, alligator, carbon fiber, and many variations in between. The version showed here has a MSRP of $35. I really appreciate and like the concept, not a fan of the overall size. 

Pros - very unique

Consideration - the size of the cutter
MSRP: $35
