With cigar ring gauges ranging from the upper 30s to well above 60, it might make sense to carry a pair of cutters to best handle what you’ll smoke next.

Credo decided to put those two cutters into one pocket-sized and wallet-friendly unit, the Special T, which is designed to cut virtually all cigar shapes. It is the latest evolution of a cutter design that started with the Synchro, which had a single 56 ring gauge cutter. This current model features two openings, one at 36 ring gauge and the other at 58, both of which use a double guillotine cut to produce a sharp and accurate clip. The stainless steel blades are encased in a durable plastic body that is offered in standard black or an assortment of other colors.

The Credo Special T has an MSRP of $14.95 and is distributed by Arango Cigar Co. It is now available at cigar and tobacco retailers throughout the U.S.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
