The Lotus Group is unveiling a pair of new products at this week’s Tobacco Plus Expo: a serrated blade version of its Deception cutter, as well as a 15-count travel humidor.

The Deception cutter has been in the company’s portfolio for several years, but now is getting a twin serrated blade option, a feature that has been added to several of the company’s cutters. It remains capable of cutting up to a 62 ring gauge cigar, and offers single or double action. It is offered at an MSRP of $29.95 and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Additionally, the company is adding the VC15, a 15-count travel humidor priced at $39.95. According to the company, the humidor is airtight, waterproof and crush-proof, as it is made with impact resistant ABS plastic. Inside is a humidifier, foam lining, and removable foam inserts to keep cigars safe during travel. The company also says that the humidor will float should it be dropped in water, and comes with a carrying strap for additional portability.

Both products are available for immediate shipment. The Tobacco Plus Expo runs Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

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.
