If you’ve been following nature news lately, particularly if you live in the eastern part of the United States, you’ve likely heard about Brood X, the 10th brood of periodical cicadas that has begun to emerge after spending the past 17 years underground. The insects are not only known for their unique life cycle, but their very noticeable mating call, which results in a significant buzzing sound.
To commemorate the event, Rick Hutchings of Scrim by HutcH Studio, has created a limited edition cigar cutter, the Scrim by HutcH Brood X.
Like Hutchings’ other cutters, it uses a XIKAR Xi3 cutter body, while the handles are made from buffalo horn and feature reverse scrimshaw art, with a cicada depicted on the right handle and Brood X on the left handle.
Only 17 cutters are being produced, each priced at $400 and coming with a protective leather pouch. They can be ordered directly via the Scrim by HutcH Studio website.
