    Hey does anyone have Benchmade's cigar cutter? What are your thoughts? I love my Benchmade and their products but was wondering if their's was worth the 450 they were asking when you can pick most up for a couple bucks.

    I've read that it doesn't actually cut cigars well since it's poorly designed:rolleyes:

    "The major issue seems to be one of design: if you look through the bottom of the housing—you can see what I am talking about in the photograph above—there is an obvious gap between the blade and the edge of the inside housing. Basically, this means that when you cut a cigar, there is almost always going to be a small portion of the cap that is going to be left uncut, regardless of what you do to try and mitigate that fact."

    I too enjoy benchmade, and I know nothing about what you’re asking, but even if it cut cigars better than the finest cigar cutter of all time, I am willing to bet it is definitely not worth the money. You might as well buy a sweet ass knife and cut it with that

    I agree about using a good knife to cut a cigar and I do that often however sometimes depending on the cigar you need a good cutter which I feel sadly benchmade hasn't met the mark based on most responses. I guess i keep carrying my benchmade for EDC and my cutter for cigars.
