Colibri Adds to Monza Collection at IPCPR


Colibri has announced that they will be releasing an updated collection of their Monza line at this year’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.
James Miúdo from Colibri said that “over the past 12 months or so, we’ve seen a rise in popularity of the punch cut, and at the same time we’ve had many requests from our customers for one with a larger ring to handle the larger gauge cigars that they are smoking.” As a response to these requests, the company will be adding the Monza Punch.



The Monza Punch holds a 10.0 mm blade that is accessed with a twist of the front half of the body. It features a key ring and as part of the Monza collection, features the same pachmayr pattern on the body as the rest of the line, which the company says provides a sure grip for twisting open and shut. It will be available in all black or with anodized red or blue detail. As do all Colibri lighters and cutters, the Monza Punch carries a two-year warranty. Suggested retail for the Monza Punch is $39 and it will be available in stores and online in stores in late September.

The  Colibri Monza series was released at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show and also includes the Monza 3 triple-jet lighter ($89), Monza 1 single-jet lighter ($59) and a 62 gauge double-guillotine cutter ($49). Colibri also produces lighter and cutter gift sets as part of the Monza line.

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, 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.
