Scrim by HutcH Studio has announced a new cigar cutter design honoring Vietnam veterans, and it is slated to get its release at this summer’s Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Convention & Trade Show.

Called the Vietnam Wall/Fallen Warrior design, the handles are made from buffalo horn with a reverse scrimshaw design. The design is limited to just 100 pieces, which must be ordered at the trade show. The first 10 will be available for immediate shipment, and if all 100 pieces are ordered, Rick Hutchings said that they will all be delivered by November 1st. Pricing is set at $500 per cutter, which comes with a hand sewn, black leather pouch.

Vietnam veterans and their families who purchase the cutter will be able to have their service dates added to the back of one handle at no extra charge beyond the cost of postage.

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.
