The CroMagnon and Aquitaine Atlatls from RoMa Craft Tobac are getting a new home in the coming weeks as they will soon be heading to Fine Ash Cigars in Avondale, Ariz.
Skip Martin of RoMa Craft confirmed that the 7 x 38 lanceros are heading west after previously being available at PodmanCigars.com and as event-only releases. They will still be used for events, Martin said, noting that all of the store exclusives produced by RoMa Craft are used “sparingly” for events.
Sam Lopez of Fine Ash Cigars told halfwheel that he expects to have the cigars within a few weeks.
The CroMagnon Atlatl was reviewed on halfwheel in November 2012. The term atlatl refers to a spear-throwing tool that traces its roots back some 17,000 – 21,000 years to caves in France during the Upper Paleolithic Era, according to Wikipedia. The tool added speed and range to spears used during that era, and the device is still used in hunting and sporting competitions to this day. News of the vitolas first came out in late April 2012, along with pictures of each.
