Quality Importers Trading Co. is adding four new cutters to its portfolio, all under the Palió brand name.

One (pictured above) is a new model, the Palió Basta, a double guillotine cutter designed to cut up to 90-ring gauge cigars. Its aperture is so large that it can actually fit an 80-ring gauge cigar through its opening. The Basta measures 1.75 inches x 3.75 x .25 and uses stainless steel blades.

It has an MSRP of $2.99 per cutter and it is sold to retailers in POP displays containing 24 cutters.

The Palió Original Cutter is now offered in three additional cutters: Matte Blue, Matte Gray and Matte Red. Like other Palió Original cutters, it’s a double guillotine cutter with a unique blade design that sees one blade stay in the body of the cutter while the other moves on a track. The cutter measures 3.75 inches x .5 x 2.75. It’s designed to cut cigars up to 60 ring gauge.

Each of the new color options has an MSRP of $24.99 per cutter. Like the Basta, the three new colors are shipping to stores.
