In addition to its recently announced collection of new lighters for summer, The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics will be adding a handful of new cutters to its Lotus and Vertigo brands.

The company says it offers either single or double action, with the blades released via a spring loaded locking mechanism. It measures 2.27 inches across and .45 inches in thickness.

It is offered in five design and finish options: American flag, fedora, black matte crackle, chrome satin, and woodgrain, each priced at $59.95.

Lotus is also adding a v-cutter by way of the Viper. It can cut cigars up to a 64 ring gauge and offers a spring loaded locking mechanism, while the body is metal with rubberized edges. It is offered in five colors: black, brushed chrome, brushed gunmetal, brushed copper, and brushed red, each with the rubberized black edges and priced at $49.95.

Vertigo is adding a new value-oriented cutter in the Pinnacle, a single action guillotine that cuts cigars up to 54 ring gauge. It’s made from a plastic body and stainless steel blade, with pricing set at $1.19.

The Lotus brand is also adding a new 15-count travel humidor, the VC-15. It is made from an impact-resistant plastic that offers watertight and airtight protection for cigars. It also offers a carrying strap, integrated foam humidifier, and an additional foam divider. It is priced at $34.95 and joins the brand’s five- and 10-count options.

About the author

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.
