You may remember our reviews for a few other Screwpop Tool accessories, like the Screwpop Cigar Punch. They’re a great company that makes some handy and innovative cigar supplies, and recently we received their newest product to try, the Screwpop Cigar Cutter.
The Screwpop Cigar Cutter is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a gadget designed to make it fast and easy to cut your cigars. It’s a tiny thing, not much bigger than a straight razor, and not too far off in appearance either. It’s small enough to fit on your keychain, doubles as a bottle opener (because really, why not?), and is flat enough to go inside your wallet. You can take it with you on the go. It’s perfect for the golf course or anywhere else.
Is it the sharpest cigar cutter we’ve ever seen? No, it’s not, and there may be times when you would want something a little more heavy-duty. But it is easy to use. It’s almost effortless to cut tapered cigars. As for the rest, even those with higher ring gauges aren’t too tricky to deal with. You set the cigar upright and hold it steady with one hand while you fit the cigar cutter over the end with the other. Once you have the fit just right, you just pinch the sides together, and the end usually comes right off. It’s easy to make adjustments if you have to. Incidentally, we tested it on bottles too, and it’s a cinch to use for that purpose as well.
What’s the ring at the bottom for? That’s just a handy attachment you can use for your keychain and so on. It makes it easy to carry the cutter with you wherever you go. You never know when you’ll need a cigar cutter handy, and this way, you’ll always have one.
All in all, it’s a great little gadget, sleek, simple, sophisticated, and very affordably priced—just $14.95.
