Quality Importers is teaming up with the renowned jeweller Jacob & Co. for a second time. Just like last time, Xikar is the brand chosen for the collaboration. The Xikar X-Clusive is a series of made-to-order luxurious cigar cutters featuring custom enamel finishes and luxurious appointments such as precious stones or metals. Most retail for thousands of dollars, with one particularly luxurious item selling for $160,000

“It’s our pleasure to continue working with Jacob & Co. to introduce innovative products that consumers have never dreamt of or seen before,” says Michael Giordano, founder and chief executive officer of Quality Importers Trading Co., who owns and distributes Xikar. He called the accessories “heirlooms intended to be passed down through generations.”

X-Clusive will focus on the Constellation and Geometric cutters, each of which is available in two finishes for their sterling silver bodies. The Constellation cutter is available in either black or blue enamel finishes with sterling silver detailing reminiscent of the cosmos, whereas the Geometric cutter is available in either a yellow to burgundy sunburst or solid sterling silver finish. Both Geometric cutters feature an ombre pattern that gives the appearance of a textured surface. These cutters have a suggested retail price of $16,000.

The most expensive cutter of the series is the Duelling Dragons Chasing Flaming Pearl Cigar Cutter. Retailing for a staggering $160,000, this cutter features an 18K gold body and handles, the latter of which are crafted in the likeness of two Chinese dragons with ruby eyes atop the two steel blades. In the body are more than 1,900 rubies, and at the top is a golden flame set with a pearl. This is a copy of the cutter that Xikar and Jacob & Co. made in 2020.
