Rick Hutchings has released a new option for his customized cutters that is made from stabilized buffalo horn.

Stabilized buffalo horn has been treated by being soaked under pressure in a clear or colored acrylic solution, which in turn stops the material from shrinking and splitting. The handles are then cut into what’s referred to as a bike tank shape due to their resemblance of a motorcycle’s gas tank, and are offered in yellow, red, gold, blue, orange, green and white.

As for the body of the cutter, Hutchings uses the XIKAR Xi3 and offers it in either polished or black chrome.

All of the color combinations are regular, ongoing production and are priced at $300. Each cutter also comes with a black biker leather pouch.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
