August 2, 2013 (New York, NY) — Cigar aficionados today have a broad range of options from which to select the cigar they will smoke and the accessories they will use for the perfect cigar experience. The v-shaped cut is a classic preparation for a cigar that has come back into popularity as enthusiasts explore new flavor profiles and blends, and ways in which to enjoys them. The Colibri V-Cut was carefully designed to elevate this experience.

The Colibri V-Cut has an all-metal construction intentionally contoured for its beauty and to fit securely in the hand, providing control of the instrument as the cutting action is performed. The rubberized finish on the body provides additional grip and durability.

The stainless steel blade is spring-loaded and released with a downward press of the trigger. The v-shaped blade is purposefully designed with a deep and acute angle, so as to penetrate deeply into the cigar cap and provide a robust draw. The blade runs smoothly on two tracks to prevent any twisting while in motion, ensuring a clean and crisp cut.

Particular attention was given to the aperture of the opening, giving it a wide ring gauge so that smoker’s could enjoy the V-Cut on large 60+ ring gauge cigars. Its even works great on a torpedo cap.

The Colibri V-Cut will be available in fine tobacconists and online this Fall 2013 for $39 MSRP in three color treatments: black rubber + anodized black, black rubber + anodized blue and black rubber + anodized red—all elegantly presented in a Colibri gift box.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
