Rick Hutchings, the man behind Scrim by HutcH cigar cutters, has announced that he is creating a second edition of the Expendables Stallone Skull cigar cutter.

The cutter uses buffalo horn handles with reverse scrimshaw art done by Hutchings, which pays tribute to the character Barney Ross, played by Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables movie series, which debuted in 2010. As with his other offerings, Hutchings uses a Xikar Xi3 cigar cutter body for this project.

The second batch is limited to just 250 pieces, which are priced at $500 per cutter and come with a protective, hand sewn black leather pouch. Additionally, 10 artist proofs were made, which sell for $600.

Hutchings said that production is currently underway with cutters available approximately two weeks after ordering. He noted that customers can request certain numbers as well, though numbers one, two, and 13 have already been claimed, as well as the first and second editions of the artist proofs.

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.
