XIKAR has begun shipping its new VX2 cutter, a few weeks ahead of its original October release date.
The new cutter features XIKAR’s reverse v-cut blade that cuts from the outside in, which the company says helps reduce the amount of cracking at the head of the cigar. This updated version also provides a deeper cut than the original model. A button on the side of the VX2 releases the cutting mechanism from its latched position when not in use.

It’s offered in four colors: black, gunmetal, red, and silver, each priced at $49.99. While this initial shipment is limited, the company says it is still on track to have the full rollout in October.
Additionally, XIKAR announced that another shipment of the HP4 lighter will be available in October after selling out its initial production.
