The latest creation from Scrim by HutcH Studio not only uses a XIKAR cutter body, but it’s specifically designed to pair with a XIKAR lighter.
The Scrim by HutcH Studio Tactical cutter is designed as a complement to the XIKAR Tactical 1 lighter, which is known for its oversized single flame torch as well an emphasis on its durability.
As with other Scrim by HutcH creations, the cutter uses a XIKAR Xi3 body, a dual guillotine design that uses 440C stainless steel blades with a Rockwell HRC 57 rating, and can handle cigars up to a 60 ring gauge. The handles are made from Kirinite, an acrylic that is known for its durability, stability and distinctive look. In this case it gets covered with a wrinkle finish black ceramic coating. While the Tactical 1 lighter is available in several color options, Rick Hutchings told halfwheel that he is currently limiting the cutter to the black color way.
The Tactical cutter is being added as an ongoing production item priced at $250 and is currently available directly from Scrim by HutcH Studio. Each cutter comes with a pouch designed with a spot for the Tactical 1’s clip to allow it to sit next to the cutter without rubbing the finish.
