Casdagli will be showing off a new collection of cigar accessories at this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, namely a new porcelain ashtray and a new cigar cutter produced by XIKAR, all as part of the Villa Casdagli Collection.

The Villa Casdagli Collection ashtrays are made in Portugal out of premium Portuguese porcelain by a company that specializes in such custom pieces. The company, which is not being disclosed, has among their clients both royalty and some of the best hotels and hospitality companies in the world, according to a statement from Casdagli, adding that the two companies have worked together for the past three years and that they “are continually impressed by the quality of their workmanship.”

The pattern adorning these ashtrays is directly drawn from the original wallpaper decorating the Byzantine style reception room of Villa Casdagli, reflecting true craftsmanship in its exuberant colors. They are priced at $90 and will be available both at retail and directly from the company.

Complementing the ashtray is a new cutter that is being produced by XIKAR and bear the same pattern directly drawn from the original wallpaper decorating the Byzantine style reception room of Villa Casdagli. The body is made of aluminum, while the double guillotine blades are stainless steel. It will retail for $125.

Both items are regular production items and will begin shipping immediately following the trade show, which runs from June 28 – July 2.

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, 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.
