Hi, my name is Matthew Driggers and we are
here at Cigar Castle in Tampa, Florida and
on behalf of Expert Village this is how to
hand roll cigars and smoking tips and techniques.
Now we are going to talk about the different
types of cutters that we have for the different
cigars. The first and most common kind is
what’s called a guillotine or a straight cut.
This is your most typical kind. It just looks
like this and cuts from both sides. Some of
them cut down from one, like this, or it just
cuts down one blade. I prefer the two blades
because you get equal pressure on both sides
of the cut. This is called a v cut or a wedge
cut. If you look at it from the side you can
see it’s got a slight wedge in here and the
blade just comes down straight from the top
and cuts a wedge into the head of the cigar.
This is what’s called a punch and all it does,
is, you wiggle this into the end of the cigar
and it kind of removes just a little bit of
the cap, just enough for you to draw some
smoke out of it.
