Screwpop Cigar Punch Review (and giveaway!)

Screwpop Cigar Punch

I have recently received a new cigar gadget called Screwpop and, after a few weeks of using it on regular basis, I thought it was time to post a quick review (and, as the title says, we've got a giveaway - read on!).

Screwpop is a cigar punch and a bottle opener. It is described by Screwpop Tool LLC, the company that retails this and other handy tools, as follows:

This durable cigar punch is equipped with a sharp, stainless steel insert for neat-and-easy cutting, threaded screw cap and lightweight aluminum body. The punch can be clipped to belt loops, straps, key rings, in the eyelets of zippers — and just about everywhere else.

ScrewpopScrewpop feels solid and works as advertised - the blade is sharp and makes flawless punch cuts. It's a bit large since it's targeted at the American market, so you might find the cut too wide for your petit corona. The bottle opener is also easy to use once you figure out the way you should hold the tool (I admit I needed a second look). The fact that you can clip it to your belt loop or key ring really helps.

Screwpop Cigar Punch is currently available at $7.95 from Cigars International. Courtesy of Screwpop Tool, we're giving away three of these accessories to our readers! In order to enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. Feel free to tell us about your favorite cigar accessory.

The winners will be randomly selected in one week. The contest is open internationally.

  1. Alessandro D'Agostini says:

    I’m a puncher guy. Even figurados I punch… What a dream tool!

  2. I love my Palio cutter. Thanks for the chance.

  3. Why not.

  4. Not always a punch guy but it works great when I travel and going through TSA. My regular Xikar cutter has to go checked…
    Add the bottle opener and clip capabilities and boom, I like it!

  5. Sounds handy

  6. Neat sounding punch. Ive been looking for a larger one. Favorite tool is my Xikar scissors.

  7. sounds perfect for the golf bag.

  8. I would like one, please!

  9. I love it when creative company’s invent new high quality gear that’s actually useful. I’m tired of plastic junk at a 300% markup. One way or the other, I’m getting this. And it looks like it would make a great gift too.

  10. I love the fact that it’s pictured with my favorite cigar and beer. Add James Bond and what could be better?

  11. I think I might be finally convinced to cut my cigars using a punch cutter. I’m very fond of my various logo’ed precise cut cigar cutters but this Screwtop sounds cool. Now if I can finally find out where to purchase those little j-1300 torch lighters I will be set for my mini travel kit for cigars.

  12. Screwpop I meant to say.

  13. Would love to use this on an Avo and IPA combination!

  14. That’s a great idea for killing 2 birds with 1 stone. I’ve been wanting a punch for a while and with the bottle opener, well that’s just the perfect combo.

  15. Steve Gillette says:

    I’ve never used a punch so it looks interesting. The thing I’d like to know is how does the spring on the clip/bottle opener hold up with repeated use?

  16. I like it, a tool I didn’t even know that I needed.

  17. I can feel my cigars calling already for this tool.

  18. One stop shop. Cigar punch and a bottle opener, awesome!!

  19. a lighter…. any lighter cause I cant smoke without it lite!!

  20. Great idea. This would go in the golf bag.

  21. Tyler Mappe says:

    I always punch my cigars when I can. This punch looks amazing though! Bottle opener and punch that I can clip anywhere I want! Great for the golf course or smoking on the patio with a beer after a hard days work. I hope I win!

  22. Awesome idea Yet another thing to add to the shopping list.

  23. mathieurlp says:

    i always wanted to try a punch!

  24. Always in the market for a cool new gadget. Thanks for the giveaway (and always fun review). As far as current cigar toys go, I love my Xikar V-Cutter and their Multi-tool (too bad the airlines won’t always let you fly with it.) Note: I’m not a shill for Xikar!

  25. MattSRoss81 says:

    I have one of these ScrewPop Punches and love it – great new tool!

  26. This is one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?” things. Thanks for the giveaway.

  27. I would love a punch cutter!!

  28. Great idea. Perfect for the course!

  29. Cool gadget! My favorite right now is my lighter and punch combo when I don’t have room for a cutter too. Even better when you have a bottle opener and punch!

  30. I like it! Two important tools always handy on a key ring!

  31. Great pocket tool for an outdoor jacket when in the field. Small,simple and robust the way all good items are produced.

  32. Great looking tool.

  33. That thing looks sweet! My favorite accessory is my Xikar lighter/cutter combo. The guillotine is magnetic and sticks to the lighter so you only have to carry one item.

  34. skatetampa84 says:

    I really need a cigar punch, and am one of the few who normally drinks beer with a cigar. This would be perfect.

  35. Nice tool…love the fact that its mobile…can clip it to anything!

  36. I prefer punch but, have trouble finding one that stays sharp regardless of the price. Look forward to trying this one.

  37. Gregory Ceaser says:

    Sounds like a great accessory to have. Currently my favorite accessory is my Cigar Stub. Allows me to enjoy every bit of my stogies

  38. my favorite accessory is definitely my Xi3 redwood cutter. perfect cuts every time.

  39. They have a boy scout badge for this…
    just kidding

  40. Never had any luck with a punch, but I’d give it a try!

  41. This is the perfect tool to have: it’s compact and practical

  42. Gary Patterson says:

    I’m always looking for new toys! This dual purpose tool looks like a lot of fun bridging two of my favorite past-times. I hope I win.

  43. I think this could be my new favorite cigar tool. Win one or not I will find one soon. Great item.

  44. Thom Varga says:

    I want one! I have a punch i love but can’t remember where I got it or I’d buy several more. Hate it when that happens.

  45. What an awesome little tool for mowing… barbecuing… hammock lounging… pretty much anywhere and anytime you’d have a cigar and a beer at the same time!,

  46. I used to swear by my Xikar cutter but of late I have become a punch guy. A great tool!

  47. Thanks for the chance! !

  48. What an awesome tool! My current favorite is my Xikar V-cut that doubles as a cigar holder.

  49. Great idea especially during cookout season

  50. Nice to have multi- functional doo-dads!

  51. Well, ok, I’m in…

  52. In. Never used a punch before, stick with the guillotine or double guillotine.

  53. My Ronson Jetlite; it’s outlasted and outlit a Prometheus and a stack of Xikars.
    Would love to have a nice punch, though. I like that it’s wider than most.

  54. A great tool when traveling but not only :)
    It might end up the permanent tool :P

  55. George Parry says:

    I love my OneOff’s Portable Ashtray, and my Vector Heatran, but a bottle opener would be a great addition.

  56. I travel quite a bit for work and this would work nicely in a pinch for a beer and a smoke. Thanks for the contest.

  57. Looks like a great tool and addition to any cigar smokers’ accessory pool. I am more a straight cut guy and love my Perfect Cut cutter from Cuban Crafters. My B&M guy and best friend are big on punch cuts.

  58. I’m an accessory nut. Thanks for the contest!

  59. Sounds great

  60. This looks like a nice little punch. What’s the size of the cut itself?

  61. Nice little tool, definitely would like one.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  62. It looks like a winner to me. Would love to win one as well!

  63. I’ve only used a punch for a few months but like them more than a guillotine. I could use a new one that also doubles as a can opener.

  64. ooOooh, beer opener and puncher! Perrrrfect! :D

  65. Awesome tool – handy for the glovebox or your back pocket!

  66. Beer and cigars? I like both of those things! The bottle open looks a bit awkward but I’m more than willing to win one and try it out. :-) Thanks for the contest!

  68. Cool, a punch with a bottle opener! Now I won’t have to scratch up my lighters opening bottles!

  72. Not a doubt in my mind, my Palio cutter! Thanks for the contest.

  73. This is a great tool.
    Cant think of a tool that would get more use.

  74. this looks like a very handy tool. I would switch to a punch; it would be like an experiment.

  75. Pretty cool looking dual service tool. Don’t use many punches, usually cutters, but I do open plenty of micro brews so this could be my next love affair.

  76. I love my vector lighter

  77. My favorite cigar accessory has to be a nice cold scotch on the rocks.

  78. dee dee ramone says:

  98. Victimssun (Dave) says:

  116. Nice tool to have attached to my golf bag.

  117. Brent Wardle says:
