The Lotus Group has released six new color options for its Deception cigar cutter, a pair in carbon fiber and a quartet known as the Techni-Color collection.

The Techni-Color collection is available in four colors: blue, gray, white and red, each of which feature colored blades and an all-over starburst design on the body. The carbon fiber versions are available in either chrome or gold as accents on the body, while the blades do not add any design.

Like the original Deception cutter, these can handle up to a 62 ring gauge cigar and feature twin stainless steel blades with a spring loaded and locking release mechanism, as well as a contoured body design to make gripping and use more comfortable. The cutter measures 2 3/4″ x 1 7/8″ x 1/2″.

Each of the new color options is priced at $39.95 and comes with a free limited lifetime warranty.

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.
