News: RoMa Craft Tobac to Sell CroMagnon Atlatl & Slobberknocker


Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac announced on Twitter that the CroMagnon Atlatl and Slobberknocker would be offered for sale shortly through Tim Podwika’s Atlatl, a 7 x 38 Lancero, and Slobbernocker, a 7 1/2 x 56 double-capped Parejo, have previously been offered by Martin and his partner Michael Rosales at some 20 events around the country since this summer.

“We had so many people asking us for these,” Martin told halfwheel. “They were created to spur innovation in our factory, Nica Sueno, and to be something special for events but Tim has been doing so well with the line that we wanted to give him something special and give those who aren’t close to an event a chance to try them.”


Martin says he expects the cigars to arrive next week with the Atlatl retailing for $9.50 and the Slobberknocker retailing for $12.00. He said he expects Podwika to offer three-packs to start and left the possibility of expanding the two offerings to other accounts.

“Ultimately,  we don’t want it to be a ‘unicorn’ cigar,” said Martin. “We want it to be something that represents what we believe is our strategic advantage that being that we own our own factory and produce very high quality cigars with superior tobacco at a very competitive price point.”

Both cigars will still be offered at events. As of this post, the cigars are not on Podwika’s website for pre-order or sale.
