Smell a freshly cut cigar as you snap your XIKAR® cutter into its locked position. The spring-loaded, double guillotine design gives the cutter feel and performance like no other.

A button release mechanism snaps the two super-hard stainless steel blades into the open position.

Many cigar cutters leave trailing pieces of tobacco on the lip of the cigar. Others don't cut enough of the tip to allow an even, smooth draw. Almost none of the cigar cutters on the market will accommodate the large cigar sizes preferred in the USA. Like a proper wine glass enhances a good wine, an excellent cigar cutter promotes the full performance of fine cigars.

Why would a cigar connoisseur who spends $10 to $35 per cigar use anything but the best cutter? Lack of the proper tools and knowledge prevents it!


  • Xi CuttersPowerful Performance
    An aluminum body encases the HRC 55 stainless steel blades in a spring-loaded, ergonomic shape. We harden the blades to prevent dulling, and buff them out by hand, using a felt grind wheel and stainless steel jeweler's rouge. This extra last step leaves a beautiful chrome finish, and removes all burrs and turned edges.

Instructions for Use


Hold the cutter on one side in the first crook of knuckles, and on the other side along the length of your thumb. Use a powerful snap squeeze to cut your cigar for best effect. Note the two sides operate independently of one another, so one will always close against the cigar first. Rest assured that both blades meet in the middle and that each cuts the same amount of cigar.

XIKAR utilizes the "liner lock" on Xi knives for easy opening and closing. To release the lock and close the knife, simply turn the belly of the knife up so that you can see the blade slot. Then, using your thumb, push the angled liner that is pinned against the butt of the blade sideways toward the knife handle and away from the blade base. Once the liner is in a straight position against the body, close the blade slightly and the lock is released. You can now close the knife completely.


Use only as intended. Do not place any object other than a cigar in the opening aperture of the cutter. Do not use knives to pry or puncture. This could be dangerous to you and may ruin the knife's mechanics. XI products are sharp cutting instruments! Please keep all XI products out of reach of children and irresponsible adults. Damage as a result of misuse may void your warranty.

It's Sharp!

Do not test the blades' sharpness with your thumb, it's dumb! You can't feel the edge on the sharpest blades, so you will cut yourself before it "feels" sharp. The proper way to test the sharpness of any blade is to slice a shaving off the side of a lightweight piece of paper. Angle your blade edge 45 degrees against the paper's edge, and slice. If it cuts, it is sharp. If it tears, it needs buffing.
