Building on the success of its Jaws Cutter, a double-guillotine style cutter with stainless steel serrated blades for enhanced cutting power, The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics is adding a new Jaws V-Cutter to its offerings.

For the Jaws V-Cutter, the company has updated the design a bit, reshaping the finger holes into more of an oval shape after the holes on the original Jaws were more triangular. The new cutter also gets a lightweight zinc and aluminum housing, an update from the all-metal body of the original. Size wise, the two units are nearly identical, with the Jaws V-Cutter measuring 3 5/8″ x 1.75″ x .25″, just about an 1/8 of an inch shorter than the original.

The Jaws V-Cutter’s MSRP is set at $39.95 and it will be available in four colors combinations: glossy black and black matte; anodized chrome and polished chrome; anodized red and black matte; and anodized black and polished gold.

The new cutter will be launched at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which happens July 25-28 in Las Vegas, Nev. A representative from the company expects the new cutter to have a full roll out in October, but is hopeful to have a good amount available sooner.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
