Colibri’s V-Cut cigar cutter has been one of its most popular offerings since being released in 2013, and the company is bringing that same design to its new S-Cut cutter, giving fans a new straight-cut option.

Colibri S-Cut 2

The Colibri S-Cut will be formally launched at next week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and incorporates all the design details of the V-Cut: the hourglass design, scalloped handles and inward curves of the body, as well as a dual stainless steel blade assembly that has an active blade on top and a static blade on the bottom.

The top blade is spring-loaded and is released with a downward pull of the trigger button on the front of the unit. It slides on a built-in track system that keeps the blade aligned in all three dimensions and restricts side-to-side tilting. An internal, low-friction ball-bearing system helps prevent the dual blades from separating and creating a gap between themselves, which would result in pinched and ripped tobacco as opposed to a clean cut.

Colibri is releasing the S-Cut in six handle finishes: black, red, blue, brushed chrome, brushed gold and brushed rose, all with a black rubberized body.

There will also be a second “ez-cut” version of the S-Cut that features a closed back body style to prevent the cigar from being cut too far, limiting a single cut to just two millimeters. It will be available in a rubberized black finish with brushed gunmetal handles.

All of the S-Cut models will have a suggested retail price of $39, with shipping beginning in the fall.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
